Thanks a lot.
I think this is a good solution.
Just one question: the  IM_REMOTE_DIR variable in im_kvmrc does not
seem to have any effect.
The default is
But I found the scripts are actually located in /tmp/one-im
This I can understand since we have the code in lib/mads/one_im_ssh.rb:
202 remote_dir = ENV["IM_REMOTE_DIR"]
203 remote_dir = "/tmp/one-im" if !remote_dir

However, after I changed in the new im_kvmrc:
It does not take effect.

I then realized that in im driver,
IM_MAD = [
      name       = "im_kvm_lvm",
      executable = "one_im_ssh",
      arguments  = "im_kvm_lvm/im_kvm.conf" ]
The new im_kvmrc is not used at all since the content of im_kvm.conf is

Should this im_kvm.conf file include the im_kvmrc in the same directory?
I searched the whole code and couldn't find any file with  im_kvmrc in it.
Do you think this is a bug?
