Hi Dietmar,

A good year ago I was wondering if it would be possible to add multiple
network interfaces to one OpenVZ guest with the Proxmox interface. Do
you have an idea when this would become available?

I must admit I need it quite often for my setups, and I'm still using
vzctl directly to add them, hence the question. :)

I am planning on using the clustering feature and migration of guests.
Would my direct usage of vzctl affect the migration capabilities?

Thanks for a great product, by the way!
