Need some advice regarding a simple and probably silly question. All of my systems have a small SSD as the system disk and a secondary single larger SSD for VM's. If I destroy the rpool which is created by default and recreate it on /dev/sdb will I screw anything up?

2nd SSD is ZFS. I basically want to move the rpool zpool from /dev/sda to /dev/sdb - The default rpool zpool directory is currently not in use.

Hi,

if you destroy your rpool you delete your OS, all system data are on this pool.
I would reinstall PVE and choose the correct disk in the installer.
