Yes, I remember you talking to Scott in that interview about shared storage.
I agree that is makes no sense to try and maintain a Proxmox specific
I am confused on your last statement; are there plans for Proxmox to
get shared storage working with OpenVZ but not until the next kernel
Thanks for the reply!
