Swap SATA SSD with NVMe and fix LVM of 3 disks

I purchased a new Samsung 980 NVMe SSD and would like to replace my older SSD in my Proxmox server with this.

Cloning the old drive to a new one shouldn't be a problem for me and I know how I would have to do it with dd.

I should be able to find out exactly how I can increase Proxmox's LVM volume using Google.

I combined three 2TB hard drives into one LVM volume and the hard drives are now just about /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc and /dev/sdd. But if I now remove the old SATA SSD, /dev/sda is free again and the hard drives should move forward. So the hard drives would then be on /dev/sda, /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc.

Is this a problem now or is the change detected automatically?

What exactly would I have to do to correct this?

That should Not be a Problem, LVM will detect the dives Just fine
