we would like to use memory hotpluging vor linux guest. But i can get this working now. I've testet with Ubuntu 12.04 (currently needed), 14.04 with CentoOS7 and Debian8. But it will not work for me.
I know: https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Hotplug_(qemu_disk,nic,cpu,memory)#Linux_Guests_notes
And modules are loaded. So what I'am doing wrong?
BTW: In windows guest it is working fine.

Thanks and best Regards

Using PVE 4.0-57
