On a two node NetWeaver cluster, sap-suse-cluster-connector fails to process the migration forced by sapcontrol. Such behavior is noticed when function HAFailoverToNode is called without a target node:

node1:rdxadm 32> sapcontrol -nr 00 -function HAFailoverToNode ""
30.11.2021 11:26:31
FAIL: Instance move via cluster API failed

Migration is successful only when a target node is provided:

node1:rdxadm 33> sapcontrol -nr 00 -function HAFailoverToNode "node2"
