[DRBD-user] Proxmox with Linstor: Online migration / disk move problem

I'm trying to migrate VM storage to Linstor SDS and have some odd 
troubles. All nodes are running Proxmox VE 7.1:

pve-manager/7.1-5/6fe299a0 (running kernel: 5.13.19-1-pve)

Linstor storage is, for now, on one host. When I create new VM on 
linstor it works. When I try to migrate VM from another host (and 
another storage) to Linstor it fails:

2021-11-22 13:06:53 starting migration of VM 116 to node 'proxmox-ve3' 
2021-11-22 13:06:53 found local disk 'local-lvm:vm-116-disk-0' (in 
current VM config)

TASK ERROR: migration problems

Linstor volumes are created during migration, no errors in it's logs. I 
don't know why Proxmox is cancelling this job.

When I try to move disk from NFS to Linstor (online) it fails:

create full clone of drive scsi0 (nfs-backup:129/vm-129-disk-0.qcow2)

Trying to create diskful resource (vm-129-disk-1) on (proxmox-ve3).
drive mirror is starting for drive-scsi0 with bandwidth limit: 51200 KB/s
drive-scsi0: Cancelling block job
drive-scsi0: Done.
TASK ERROR: storage migration failed: block job (mirror) error: 
drive-scsi0: 'mirror' has been cancelled

To move storage to Linstor I have first move it to NFS (online), turn 
off VM and move VM storage offline to Linstor. And bizzare thing is that 
once I do it, I can move this particular VM storage from Linstor to NFS 
online and from NFS to Linstor online. I can also migrate VM online, 
from Linstor, directly to another node and another storage without problems.

I've setup test cluster to reproduce this problem and couldn't - online 
migration to Linstor storage just worked. I don't know why it's not 
working on main cluster - any hints how to debug it?
