I have a container running on an OpenVZ server and I would like to attach another ploop disk to this container. The "/" mount point of the container is already configured as ploop drive and I would like to add another ploop disk of 100GB to the running container, Is it possible? if so, how is it done?

I would imagine it would be something like:

Create a ploop device with ploop init and either give the container access to the device through vzctl or mount the ploop device on the HN and use a bind mount to the container's root directory. The latter would require use of the mount/umount VZ scripts to make it automatic.
