|Difference between --devnodes and --devices? [message #10638]

I'm new to openvz and I'm stil testing and learning. |
The goal is to change my office system from three servers to only one machine with several virtual servers in it, including the router (with a adsl connection) and a samba server.
Maybe I would do some more questions while I'm learning to do it.
This is the first question:
[hn]# vzctl set 120 --devices b:8:18:rw --devices b:8:19:rw --save
then I ssh to the VPS and when I do:
[vps]# ls -l /dev/sdb*
I don't see any devices created.
But if I try a:
[hn] vzctl set 120 --devnodes sdb:rw --devnodes sdb1:rw --save
everything works well.
Is devnodes the right way to grant a VPS read/write access to a hard disk? Is --devices not working?
If I want to revert the above situation, I don't find a command to do it.
The only way I found to do it was deleting the line:
DEVNODES="sdb:rw sdb1:rw "
in the file /etc/vz/conf/120.conf
and inside VPS delete /dev/sdb and /dev/sdb1.
Is there a cleanest way to do it?
