pve kernel: SUNRPC: reached max allowed number (1) did not add transport to server:

I just added a Netgate 6100 with pfSense and had to change my IP address of nics on Proxmox 7.4-16 and now receiving error message in syslog of "Aug 30 11:38:22 pve kernel: SUNRPC: reached max allowed number (1) did not add transport to server:".

I have googled and cannot find any solution. Not even sure it's an issue but I'm getting a million of these messages.

Any help would be very helpful.

Forgot, also along with change in IP address now my storage, say "backups" a NFS storage now has a greyed out question mark (status unknown) but I can access the data on backups.

How to get rid of the ? mark or should I just leave as is.

Hi, did you manage to solve the issue? I also changed some of the network settings (added dedicated network for cluster communication) and I am in the same situation as you have described.
I've potentially managed to resolve my issue by hard setting the NFS version to 3 on my NFS mappings.

I changed m y mount parameter to version=3 and restarted and have been several hours now w/o the issue, which WAS repeating every 10 or 15 seconds. I'd be happy to try to reproduce if someone wants to debug
