You don't need to expand sda3 really. You can just create a new
partition, create a new PV with it and add the new PV to pve VG.

I don't know really how to reply to this. If you're building a cluster,
I suggest you configure some kind of shared storage; NFS server or Ceph
cluster for example.

Maybe you can start telling us your target use for this server/cluster.
Also some detailed spec of the server would help; for example does it
have a RAID card with more than one disk, or you're using a 6TB single disk?
