How to remove a share NFS from Proxmox cluster?


Aug 3, 2011
I did some research and have not found this procedure. I found a lot of how to add NFS, but not remove. BTW using GUI to add NFS is super easy. I am still on Proxmox 5.1-41 and I was able to use GUI to disable the share and remove it from GUI. If you have a small cluster or 3 nodes do you need to perform the below manual unmount command on all 3 nodes after using the GUI ?

umount /mnt/pve/nfs-share

What is the best way to remove a shared NFS from a cluster? Is the GUI all that needs to be done? Thank you.
Both. Remove from the GUI then unmount.
Otherwise after reboot the share will be back (either working or spamming with errors).
