NFS mounts offline after enabling firewall

When I enable the firewall in v5.4 under Datacenter->Firewall options, all NFS mounts are offline but I can still ping the NFS host. To get the NFS mount working again, I have to disable the firewall.

I don't know your firewall rules but an ICMP Ping is not the same as TCP/UDP NFS traffic.
You have to allow the NFS traffic to your storage.
