Hi Dietmar, and thanks for the answer.

Even work well for the live migration of VMs? ... I did not know about of
it, AFAIK, for get a live migration successfully, also is necessary change
other things in PVE (i guess that the code in the module of live migration
has to be changed).

And although i want to use DRBD9, the problem is that isn't ready for his 
use in production environments, according to the recommendation of Lars 
Ellenberg, so in the meantime, i will have to use necessarily DRBD8.

Moreover, about PVE and his module of "live migration", i would like to
ask you...
1- Do it has the option of execute previous and subsequent commands to the
same run of the live migration? (As it has vzdump).
2- If the answer is negative, can you add such feature?.
3- And if the answer es positive, can you do a explain about of that in the
PVE Wiki, or here?
(That would be fantastic for me)
