FreeNAS 9.10 Replication can not mount

Problem

Replication has been working fine using a dedicated user until I decided to move my backups from ISCSI shares to NFS shares, thus having to replicate from scratch. The replication seems to work as the dataset is transferred and the data is readable on the remote side. However on the push side it is marked as “Failed”, then after a short while it is marked as “Up to date” but no snapshot is listed in the column “Latest snapshot sent to remote side”.

In the logs (tail -f /var/log/debug.log) I kept noticing this:

My photos backup totals around 120 GB but trying to copy this manually resulted in the file explorer reporting 1.1 TB of data to be copied.
