When I install Proxmox 8.0.2, I get:
I have four absolutely same disks
I have data on two disks, but I do not know which disks, I only know the serial numbers of these disks.
How can i get serials some as:
/dev/sda --- 2332E86834B7
/dev/sdb --- 2332E86834BA
/dev/sdc --- 2332E86834BC
/dev/sdd --- 2332E86834BF

Maybe in the debug console?

You can try to open another TTY by pressing CTRL+ALT+F1 and enter:

ls /dev/disk/by-id
