Samba Storage becomes unavailable

Hi there! I recently added a Hetzner Storage Box as new SMB/CIFS Storage to my pve environment. Everything worked out fine so far, however after a few days the storage becomes unavailable on the pve host. Manually disabling & re-enabling the storage does not fix the issue, only a full reboot does (but then after a few days it becomes unavailable again).
I suspect this may be related to however I don't have any "msg.lock" like described in that issue.
Any help would be appreciated:)
Manually mounting and specifying the SMB version seems to solve the issue (at least for now, let's see if it becomes unavailable again): mount -t cifs //<server_ip>/<share> /mnt/<mountpoint> -o vers=2.0
