I have a 3 node Proxmox HA Cluster as a home lab running on PVE8 and using Ceph. My boot disk in one of my nodes is throwing SMART Alerts, so I want to replace the drive.

How do I backup my Node's configuration and restore it? I seen from my research that you just reinstall proxmox itself, but how do you reload the host configuration?
