[PVE-User] Recommendations for a small cluster

Currently freenas / NFS / ZFS does not work well with  Debian squeeze .

I may have had something set up wrong, but spent a long time trying to 
get that set up to work.

See the Proxmox forum for issues people have had with that set up.

Why not use kvm + drbd on the 2 pve servers and have a highly available 
setup?

  If a NFS server is needed on a 3-rd system , try  using   Debian GNU 
.  You can choose linux or  kFreeBSD.  Setting up a nfs server is 
something easy to do or find information on how to do. If you want zfs 
that is easy to on  Ubuntu , and not too hard on Debian .
