ZFS Storage pool unlinked from VMs

I had a single node in Proxmox and attempted to create a cluster and now my VMs can't see their storage which is a ZFS pool of local disks so they fail to start. I can still see the ZFS pools when I select the original node, so I don't think the data is gone the VMs/Node just can't map it to the VM.

I followed a YouTube video to get around an error I encountered during the cluster creation. In this video I copied the config locally and then deleted it on the node that had VMs. I then copied the config back after the cluster was created. I am not sure if this is the cause, or if it being a cluster is causing the issue.

Let me know if any more info is needed; I'm fairly new to Proxmox so not sure what logs to post etc.
