Hello, I'm a new user of proxmox, and I want to say that I'm very pleased with it. Now about my question: I have two virtual machines, one with KVM another with OpenVZ, I want to create a virtual network between them, so that one can share disk space with the other using samba. I don't want this kind of comunication to go thought the physical nic that is already dont bridging for these to machines. Can I add a new nic (virtual or brigded) to a alreay created vm ?

For KVM you can do that on the web interface (VM hardware tab).

Openvz is more difficult, and it only works in 'bridged' network mode. But you can set it up manually (man vzctl).
