Hello,
i have a failed 3 node cluster,
two nodes are broken and all vm now are on the node 3.

Now /etc/pve are not mounted and so i hav this error when i try to restart pvestatd:
systemctl restart pvestatd

Oct 04 09:28:37 stgvps pveproxy[1686]: /etc/pve/local/pve-ssl.key: failed to load local private key (key_file or key) at /usr/share/
Oct 04 09:28:37 stgvps pveproxy[1685]: /etc/pve/local/pve-ssl.key: failed to load local private key (key_file or key) at /usr/share/
Oct 04 09:28:37 stgvps pveproxy[1687]: /etc/pve/local/pve-ssl.key: failed to load local private key (key_file or key) at /usr/share/
Oct 04 09:28:37 stgvps pve-ha-lrm[6251]: updating service status from manager failed: Connection refused

If i restart the node, and done: pvecm expect 1
now i can start all VM but afer some minutes web interfaces die and the cluster go offline and again i cant restart pvestatd.
