I think you check "Shared" for Storage Type when creating a compute
offering for an HA host. So I'm not sure whether your assumption about the
assumption is correct. I'd love to hear more about this.

Since we're talking about these settings, there are a few others which I'm
not sure how to document. These are in the Add Compute Offering dialog.
When the offering is for a bare metal host, would there be any restrictions
on setting these, or perhaps would some or all of them not make sense with
bare metal even if they're technically allowed:
