"Houston, we've had a problem" immediately

Edit: Never mind, I see this is a dup of: VMWare giving: ['ERROR: not a valid btrfs filesystem: /dev/disk/by-id/sda3', ''] - #2 by phillxnet. Don’t see a way to delete this post.

Immediately after logging into the web GUI, and supplying the hostname, username, and password I get the following traceback. Installing in VMware VM with two disks: 16 GB and 10 TB.

@xyzzy Welcome to Rockstor.

Yes bit of a pain this one, never mind. There are some pending changes that may make it easier for us to catch this one and present a more friendly error message. But it only affects specific vm host configs anyway, still I’d personally rather it behave in a more user friendly fashion with a user level error. It does do this if there are no serials on any one of the data drives. But we get this when the system drive has no serial.

My fault I’m afraid.
