[PVE-User] Weird use-case for rgmanager/HA config

Hi all,

In my past Proxmox VE experience, there have been a few times where a VM 
has totally crashed (ie, qemu process crash); backup problems, disk 
problems, etc...

All these times the physical node running the crashed VM was OK and a 
"qm start" or maybe a "qm unlock; qm start" was enough to have it 
working properly again.

I was thinking that maybe the HA function without fencing device can be 
used for automatic recovery of these events, so that the VM is restarted 
on the same cluster node after it has crashed.

I know it won't work in the event of a node hardware failure, I'm not 
trying to achieve that.

Do you see any evident problem I'm not seeing?

Thanks a lot
