I've just tried simple test, with 3 nodes and copies=2
After cluster initialization and single image creation and booting it.
There were two nodes with the vdi metadirectory and third node with just
vm blocks and no metadata.
Next i stopped collie on one of the two nodes - which had the vdi
After this the vm blocks were recovered/redistributed evenly between the
remaining two nodes.
However the vdi metadirectory was not created/recovered on the third node :(
