Do you have (at least) two open connections in virt-manager?  My
recollection is that virt-manager insists that you already be connected
to both source and destination libvirt connections before it will
un-grey the migration option, because the migrate dialog box only allows
the destination from a drop-down list formed from all currently open
connections besides the source.

Meanwhile, it might be a nice UI improvement if the migration screen
could add support for opening a new connection rather than only
providing a dropdown of existing connections; and if that is done, then
it would be trivial to provide the migrate option even when only one
connection is active, but that's for someone with more python skills
than me to implement.
