[PVE-User] Is there a way to permit to start up VMs when no quorum?

I don't know the idea behind keeping a VM from starting up when no 
quorum. It has been maybe, since my point of view, the worst of managing 
Proxmox cluster, because the stability of services (VM up and running) 
had to be first (before the sync of information, for instance).

Is there a way to bypass this and permit to start up a VM even on no quorum?


I read that Proxmox supports just 30 (more less) nodes in a cluster. I 
supose that it's due to the multi-master scheme on ALL nodes. Other 
solutions like Open Nebula (For instance) has a central database and it 
facilitates to grow up. Even a multi-master scheme, in which not all 
nodes take plase, would be better to Proxmox so that It could be 
scalable to hundreds of nodes.

Is there a vision on that?

Thanks in advance!
