[PVE-User] HA Group - VM Prioriy

I running some test for myself and realize that in a two node HA cluster,
when I set the nodeA to priority 1 and nodeB to priority 2, the running VM
migrated to nodeB. On the other hand, when set nodeA to priority 2, and
nodeB to priority 1, the running VM migrated to nodeA.
So I thing the priority affect where the VM reside. Perhaps I am wrong...
If so please correct me.

There are now help buttons integrated in most dialogues, they should link
to the part of the docs describing the dialogue parameters.

In this case it would be:

 nodes: <node>[:<pri>]{,<node>[:<pri>]}*

So, the higher you set the priority the higher is a nodes priority.
Also, as mentioned in the docs: this are just relative meanings, i.e. the
highest priority is the highest you set :)

So a group with:

 > nodeA:1,nodeB:2,nodeC:3

Would have the *exact* same results as:

 > nodeA:11,nodeB:222,nodeC:30101

as an exaggerating example.
