There are running tasks in vdsm.

You can inspect the tasks using:

    vdsClient -s 0 getAllTasks

You can stop running tasks using:

    vdsClient -s 0 stopTask task-uuid

And clear tasks using:

    vdsClient -s 0 clearTask task-uuid

If you canot get rid of the tasks on vdsm, you can restart vdsm.

After this you should be able to move the spm.

If it does not help, maybe restarting engine will fix it.

In any case, please file a bug and attach vdsm and engine logs since the stale
tasks were started.

This most likely a bug in engine, since engine is managing tasks on
the spm, should
know about them and clear them when they are done.
