Is there a process to add monitors to existing ceph pools?

I'm curious if there is an actual process to add monitors to existing ceph pools?

So far, the only thing I can see to do is to create a new pool with the desired monitors and then migrate the content from the old pool to the new one.

Thanks in advance for your feedback... :)
I didn't try, but It supposed to be simple. Just adjust the wiki instruction just to install monitor.

Install Proxmox in a new server and ssh connect to the this one.
Then, apt install lsb-release ntp xfsprogs.
Now add ceph repos and apt install ceph-deploy.
Finally, connect to one of the CEPH servers, copy the ssh-key to the new server and just run ceph-deploy install newserver and ceph-deploy mon create newserver

I think It will be enough.
Thanks MonXP. Let me re-ask the question.

Is the only thing i have to do delete the existing RDB Storage Device and re-add it with the new monitor IPs?

If I delete the CephFS's RDB storage device (under Datacenter/Storage) the pools should be unaffected correct?
