2.) From the WebUI, Servername -> Disks -> Initialize Disk with GPT (/dev/sdb)
3.) sgdisk --replicate=/dev/sdb /dev/sda
4.) sgdisk --randomize-guids /dev/sdb
5.) grub-install /dev/sdb
6.) zpool replace rpool 12706416511818272176 /dev/disk/by-id/wwn-0x5000cca269e871c7-part

but it ended with error and my rpool is still degraded, see

First of all since this is your main pool, you shouldn't take it offline.
Second if I remember correctly you shoild do step 1 and 2. than replace . once it is resilvered and all than do grub install.
Also in your case try running scrub.

i dont understand the error, i have checked the qcow2 file

Code:
root@pve-klenova:~# qemu-img check /var/lib/vz/images/200/vm-200-disk-2.qcow2
No errors were found on the image.
16777216/16777216 = 100.00% allocated, 0.04% fragmented, 0.00% compressed clusters
Image end offset: 1102665351168
no errors found, so why zfs show error? what can i do now?

Not sure if it make sense, But if it was me, I would do several things asap.
1. Do full backup of each vm
2. Do backup of all config files.
3. Do backup of all system config.
4. Move all of the backups off the machine. An external drive. Or plugin an extra internal drive if possible.
Copy all of it off.
5. Than make an extra copy of the file in question.

6. Delete the file.
7. Run a scrub again.
If all is well it should finish/fix the drive replacement and bring pool online.
Do tests trying booting on each drive.
I still not sure how to do this safely so do your research. Maybe someone here can chime in with help.
Once you up. Copy the image back and try starting the vm.
8. Do scrub again.

things cat more complicated.... i didn't made the backups (ordered new 4TB usb drive, but still dont have it), i needed the server to reboot and ended with grub unknown fille system... i try to boot from both disks but no luck... i removed the new one and try to boot with the old, which was working well but also no luck... what can i do now?

i have booted pve install from usb, and choose rescue but it ended with error... so i try the debug mode, but zfs or zpool commands are not know...

i NEED to rescue the data, eventualy to boot again and to make backups to external drive... how can i fix the grub problem?
