Server becomes "unclaimed" if I make some settings changes.

I have recently been running into this problem with my plex server that it becomes "unclaimed" if something changes to the docker or even settings and is only accessible on the network. My server is offsite so I was wondering if there was any way to claim the server permanently to my account. This is not a big deal by any means but it just seems strange that plex doesn't remember my server I fx. change my plex password. Does anyone know if there is a fix to this or is this just something that has not been implemented yet to plex.

sidenote: I know a VPN is probably the best way to fix it when it happens but it just seems weird that if I change my password offsite I will loose the connection to the server.
