Just trying out ProxMox, and have hit a stop on day one: I'm trying to add storage, and when I try to add an NFS share to it, it get a message reporting:

create storage failed: error during cfs-locked 'file-storage_cfg' operation: storage 'mbnas01' is not online (500)

I tried to connect to it from an existing VMWare ESXi server to confirm it is up and accessible and that worked fine. This is a share on a Synology DS1817+

Literally day one with proxmox, so if anyone has any suggestions where to look for a solution I'd appreciate it!

Thanks!

See if this solution would help you:
https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/mount-no-longer-works-in-proxmox-6-nfs-synology.56503/post-317022

It seems there is a bug in Debian which affects the way NFS mounts are handled.

Yep, this worked for me:

Btw, if you're looking for a solution, there is a simpler approach than the one suggested above. Edit this file:
/usr/share/perl5/PVE/Storage/NFSPlugin.pm

by commenting the following line in check_connection function:
Code:
if (my $err = $@) {
# return 0; ### this line needs to be commented out
}
then reload the service via systemctl restart pvedaemon
