Thanks for explanation! Now it's clear.

appreciate your hint! But tm_mv.sh script is run after the invocation of 
$SCRIPTS_REMOTE_DIR/vmm/<hypervisor>/shutdown script. A VM shutdown 
assumes complete removal of VM files/disks. So after shutdown operation 
there is nothing to archive.
Consequently I put tar command in 
$SCRIPTS_REMOTE_DIR/vmm/<hypervisor>/shutdown script to be executed 
before VM destroying. The side-effect of such approach is that VM 
working dir is archived for each VM when it is shutdown even if its disk 
is not marked to be saved either by setting SAVE attribute to 'yes' or 
by performing 'onevm saveas' command.
If someone has a better idea, please, share it.

For the time being my minimal task is to make OpenVZ working in ONE with 
non-shared fs deployment model (what fits my needs). As I wrote before 
after that I am planning to share docs and scripts for OpenNebula 2.2.1. 
Then I would like to port those scripts and docs for OpenNebula 3.0.

I created a separate dir in lib/tm_commands/ssh/ for openvz scripts and 
edit $ONE_LOCATION/etc/tm_ssh/tm_ssh.conf accordingly.
