@prodiagnostico welcome to the Rockstor community.

Could you give a little bit more information on your setup?

What version of Rockstor are you running?
From the image it seems you’re running Rockstor within a Virtual Machine. Have you set the VMWare disk settings to passthrough (so a unique UUID for the device becomes known to Rockstor)?

Not sure why the server actually froze, but it could be related to that.

The version of Rockstor that we are running is 3.9.1.
I will check the VMWare disk settings and report back

Than you

@prodiagnostico, 3.9.1 is considered deprecated at this time really (due to the age of the underlying CentOS and other components).

If it is possible would you consider upgrading to the latest stable release (4.5.8-0)? Since the underlying CentOS has changed to OpenSUSE and additional changes have been implemented (mostly renovation and refactoring to be able to move to newer versions of the components used for the Rockstor appliance/application). This would also simplify providing you with some support (free via the forums as possible, or commercial if you need it).



I managed to fix the error by following this comment and now it shows all the disks :slight_smile:

But now the shares are gone

Is there something I’m missing ?

Any assistance is very very appreciated

you might have to import the disk (second icon on the left under the disk, showing the arrow).

Thank you


I tried to import the disk but now i have this error :

Thank you


@prodiagnostico Hello there.

Sometimes the import can fail on one disk and work by using another. There is a reason but it’s tricky for us to get around this. So worth trying the import from one of the other prior members. It can also sometimes help to reboot, and then try the import again.

But in all cases, you only need one successful import from any single disk member. You do not need to import every member: a successful import will pull in all other prior members if the pool is/was in good health.

Hope that helps.
