Q. How many Live Migrations can I perform concurrently?

A. Only one Live Migration can run concurrently between the two nodes that are participating. Other nodes in the cluster can also be involved in Live Migrations, but again, one Live Migration per pair of hosts.

If you want to queue up multiple Live Migrations, you should use a virtualization management solution such as System Center Virtual Machine Manager. You could also use a script to perform the live migrations in sequence. The Microsoft PowerShell team put this script together. The script queues live migrations from a node and moves them to other nodes in the cluster.
