Hello everyone, i accidentally deleted a local-zfs storage from the Datacenter>Storage tab at the web gui. All the data is there, there is a couple web servers and a NAS and everything seems to be working, but if the data is actually deleted it would be catastrophic. The local-zfs storage does not show up on any of the 4 nodes in the datacenter. Please advise i am really desperate right now.
just re-add the storage entry (Datacenter -> Storage -> Add on the GUI) - that is a purely "logical" operation writing a PVE config file. use the name "local-zfs" and the correct dataset (probably "rpool/data"), and if you changed any of the other options, set them as well.
