Hello. I trying connect NFS storage to proxmox. I have everywhere static IP (NAS, Proxmox, my PC) and all is connect to small cisco switch without any config.

When i trying connect NFS to to proxmox didn't saw any export path and couldn't connected. But if i tryed connec NFS to the my PC, it's OK (connect standard network disk \\NAS_IP\storage and entered user/password).

Ping from proxmox to NAS is OK.

For testing: If I tryed configured on small router DHCP and I connected PC, NAS and proxmox to router ports. It works and I was able connect NFS to proxmox.

Second testing:

I connected switch to one of router ports and NAS, PC and proxmox again I connected to the switch ports where is now dhcp from router. Result is: it didn't work. proxmox didn't saw export NFS.

I looking solution all this day but no result. Is it problem on the switch?
