Thanks for pointing out! It really works when manually adding to container config, but not automatically.

How should i do this on creation of CT?
i tried with(storage is created before creating container)
pvesh create /nodes/$(hostname)/lxc -vmid $id  \
    -hostname $hostname \
    -memory $mem \
    -swap $swap \
    -storage rbd -ostemplate local:vztmpl/$template \
    -mp0 volume=rbd:vm-$id-disk-2,mp=/mnt/ \
    -onboot yes

and without volume=, no success? is it implemented?
