I tried to add a NFS Datastore, it didn't work. I like to delete and re-create it.

When I tried to delete, it remain in maintenance mode as shown below:


I tried to do the same in the command line, still the defective Datastore does not go away.

I could spend less time and re-build the PBS, but I like to know the reason behind this issue.

How can I delete the data store?
Você pode destruir a pasta do armazenamento de dados com "rm -rf" e então remover as linhas do /etc/proxmox-backup/datastore.cfg e criar um novo armazenamento de dados.
Muito bom, agora sumiu a unidade desativada.
I saw this issue also after deleting a datastore. I rebooted the server, and after it was back online and deleting a 2nd time, it immediately was removed.
Same here. Deleting it 2nd time helped. No reboot was required.
