Hello Dietmar,

thanks for your reply!

How do you think about this method?
* Adding manually fence device like the Post from MicW at 03-07-2012, 11:15 AM: http://forum.proxmox.com/archive/index.php/t-8623.html
* Changing the expocted_votes to 1 the whole time

Or is that a bad idea and your way would be better and more safeful to get no corrupt and damaged VMs?

Thanks and Regards!
