Hello,

I recently added a FreeNAS server to my network and have setup it with Proxmox as an NFS server.
Ping is ok, no loss at all. Network is 10 Gbits.

Randomly, I get the following error on my nodes :

And during this time, the server FreeNAS is correctly reachable from my ping and there is no load on it.
Do you have an idea on how can I debug this ?

Thank you.

I've found the culprit! FreeNAS is causing the issue and especially the disks inside it (full ssd, busy at 100% during the "not reachable time"). Now I'm trying to find why they are saturing... so nothing to do from Proxmox I think.
