[PVE-User] proxmox & scst target ?

I don't think that would be an issue as long as you install SCST from source and mask the builtin
FC drivers (qla2x etc).  Updating the builtin drivers shouldn't affect anything since they're masked
anyhow.  The only issue you may have would be drbd interference from Proxmox updates, I would 
test that, but it should be ok as long as you set it up correctly.

i'd just like to know if anybody is using scst/target ON proxmox node to make sure there is no interference...

updateability will be a problem, though - as proxmox update may break scst.
