Complete Rockstor newb here. So I’ve got an installation of Rockstor 4.0.7 up and running on an flash drive, while I have an old Toshiba 500GB drive available which I wanted to use for a share.
I can see the hard drive under Storage/Disks and able to format it, which I did with the Whole disk option.
That’s odd. I’m not sure what’s going on there. You could try a re-scan in the disk page first. Shouldn’t be necessary. Also a page refresh on the Pools page. It may just be a browser cache thing going on here.
Ok I think I got it fixed. I have a feeling the drive was flaking out on me whenever I switch screens so I changed the SATA cable and plug the drive into another port on the motherboard and it shows up just fine.
So yeah, it’s a hardware issue, not caused by Rockstor, my bad
