accidentally removed node from /etc/pve/nodes/

Hi all,

I'm running a 5 node cluster versin 6.0 and had to remove 2 nodes.
Everything went fine until I wanted to delete the removed nodes from the GUI.
By accident I deleted the directory of a still existing node, which was at that time running an LXC container and a VM.
Both, container and VM are still running.
I can restore their config files from the backups, but what about pveproxy-ssl.* and pve-ssl.* ?

Before things get worse, I really, really appreciate your advice.
