No, I have not. This belonged to answers I found on the net too. The only thing I have connected is a storage device (iSCSI).

It is a Nexsan Sataboy II.
But the issue seems to be solved. I disconnected the device, rebooted proxmox,
and then I reconnected the Nexsan box. Now the error-messages disapperead.
Thanks for trying to help.
