Proxmox dropping connection to a nfs storage device


Jun 3, 2022
For what ever reason the moment proxmox puts some sort of load whether it be uploading a iso to the nfs drive or running backups of vms to the nfs share it seems to just drop the connection and then refuses to reconnect unless the proxmox system is restarted.

I do not believe this issue is unraid as all the other shares which are SMB that are connected to this computer stay alive

R620 and R720 in a cluster
R720 is hosting Unraid as a vm
In Unraid ive setup a share to connect to proxmox through nfs for backups (which i currently cant do due to this issue) or uploading iso files (which sometimes works)

Pretty much if there is a way i can somehow make proxmox re-establish the connection to the nfs share that would be perfect or if there is a way of fixing the dropping of connection that would also be much appreciated

Thank you very much for reading
