    @wilderrodrigues , 
    Background -
    1. When CS tries to live migrate a volume, it chooses a host endpoint to perform the migration
by selecting any host that has the storage containing the volume mounted on it. Now when we
attempt to migrate a volume that is on a zone wide storage, the endpoint could be any host
in the zone because in case of zone wide storage, every host in the zone has the storage mounted
on it. 
    2. During migration, vCenter expects the target datastore/storage pool to be mounted on
the source host because the VM obviously needs to be able to access the target datastore.
    
    Now in the mentioned issue, say a host that doesn't contain the VM is chosen as the endpoint.
As mentioned above, it could happen because today CS chooses any host that has the source
storage mounted on it. In that case migration will fail because this host cant see the target
datastore. 
    
    By picking the host containing the volume's VM as endpoint we ensure that both the source
and target storage pools are visible to the VM irrespective of the scope of the storage pool.
    
    Previously, similar fixes have been made for other operations like volume deletion, snapshot
creation because in these cases as well the underlying resource needs the VM of the volume
to be visible to the host endpoint.
