[PVE-User] NFS share do not mount from GUI but succeed with CLI

I'm not familiar with the Windows Server as an NFS Server.  But I had
posted a message to this list just a week or two ago regarding NFS against
a linux box.  I had the linux box modified to use non-standard ports for
NFS and I had the exact same symptoms as you.  I could mount it from the
command line with a normal mount command and everything but the proxmox
GUI wouldn't connect.  I don't understand why, but as soon as I returned
the NFS server to standard ports and removed the firewall between the
proxmox/nfs server everything worked.

I would maybe look into what port(s) the windows server is using and maybe
even consider adding a rule to any firewalls to allow all connections
between your proxmox nodes and your windows server.  At least as a test to
see if this is related.

Before I saw you were using Windows Server I figured you had the exact
same issue because I literally had the EXACT same results!

Hope this helps --
