I met a problem:
During run proxmox host system, VMs start before disk array (iscsi=> lvm) attached to host-system.

But after several time from web-interface i can run VM successful..
How i can edit ordering attached iscsi and lvm storages and run VM's?

proxmox mount iscsi target via internal method, not host system. but, the time of launch VM is not yet done, and I get the error:
Tue Mar 4 03:55:02 2014: Starting VM 100 failed: status
Tue Mar 4 03:55:02 2014: Starting VM 101 Tue Mar 4 03:55:05 2014: Starting VM 101 failed: status

perhaps can you bypass using per-vm startup delay?

see vm -> options -> start/shutdown order
double clik the item, the config panel allows you to set delays, too, although it seems only related to "the order"
