Thanks Patryk,

Yes - the Proxmox GUI's existing support for migration was extended to 
support adding lustre storage, migration over lustre and all other 
features that made sense to support within the GUI.

The screencast at http://dragon.cs.uni.edu/flash/proxmoxluster.html 
shows migration from the command line because I'm just more comfortable 
at the prompt.

If you (or anyone) would like a screencast posted showing the extended 
GUI attributes with migration and lustre filesystem storage 
manipulation, I can post one within a few hours.  Let me know off-list.
