I currently have Proxmox installed on a zfs single disk, and want to move it to a zfs mirror. The tricky part is that the disk it is on now will be one of the disks in the mirror. How would I move the install to a temporary location, create the mirror with the two disks, and then move the install to the mirror? I would use Proxmox Backup Server for this, but that is running as a VM on Proxmox VE, and while I have all of my VMs backed up through it, I do not know how I would restore them since Proxmox Backup server is one of the VMs that would need to be restored. All of that being said though, the backups themselves are on a separate bare metal install of TrueNAS Scale. I do not have a backup of the Proxmox VE host, and I cannot find a good way to do that other than install the Proxmox Backup Client, but that still runs into the issue that I don't think Proxmox Backup Server can restore itself.
