KVM tip: data corruption

If you have a cluster of KVM servers, be careful - there is no locking across the cluster - AT ALL(!)

If you try to start the same virtualised host on two servers, nothing will stop you. You'll get silent data corruption and eventually you will notice one or both VMs panic.
