Removing NFS and re-adding, gets stuck.

Dec 26, 2018
So, if i remove a NFS share, and try to add it again. I get this error:
create storage failed: error with cfs lock 'file-storage_cfg': unable to activate storage

And the folder still exists under /mnt/pve/nfs-share

Why is this not also removed?

you need to unmount manually:

umount /mnt/pve/nfs-share
