There's some guidelines about NFS for proxmox? I'm using an NFS-mounted
dir for backups, and the ''nfs server'' are on one of the three node
(3jane), where i've in /etc/exports:

        /srv/pve        tessier(rw,async,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check) 

Mount options are:

        root@3jane:~# grep 3jane /etc/mtab 
        3jane:/srv/pve /mnt/pve/Backup nfs 
 0 0

And, supposing for the 'bootstrap' problem (the node are trying to
unmount a FS that was mounted by the server itself, and the NFS server
is just stooped ;), rebooting node 3jane is a bit problematic. ;-)

I've set:

        options vers=3,soft,intr

on /etc/pve/storage.cfg, but there's some optimal/preferred/useful nfs
export options also?


PS: backup is only a scratch space, all data then get transferred to
