Error on VMWare Install

Trying to install Rockstor to evaluate it on a VMWare box. After installation when I go to the web config I get the following when scanning for drives.

        Traceback (most recent call last):

CommandException: Error running a command. cmd = [’/sbin/btrfs’, ‘filesystem’, ‘show’, ‘/dev/disk/by-id/sda3’]. rc = 1. stdout = [’’]. stderr = [’’]

No drives appear. I created 4 drives in the virtual machine. Any help would be appreciated.



@Christopher_Nicol Welcome to the Rockstor community.
This looks very much like the drives you passed through or created have no serial numbers. This is a requirement for them to be tracked by Rockstor. If you enable serial numbers for all Rockstor drives at the VMWare level you should be good to go.
