Highpoint Rocket 750 - hdd serial numbers not populated under "View Disks"
In the gui of freenas 18.104.22.168 with a Highpoint Rocket 750 the hdd do not show up in the "View Disks".
If I run this command:
python /usr/local/www/freenasUI/middleware/notifier.py serial_from_device da7
Then the serial number is correct. I have attached a screen shot of the web page with no drive serial numbers. For now I have started using the description field to put in the serial number manually.
The Highpoint Rocket 750 came with our "Storinator" server (http://www.45drives.com/products/direct-wired-redundant.php). Basically a open source design for a file server that can hold 45 hard drives from backblaze (https://www.backblaze.com/blog/backblaze-storage-pod-4/).

If this is like the other Highpoint controllers I've worked with, they do not support SMART. Assuming this is the case I wouldn't recommend you use that controller because of the lack of SMART support. Also, as a result the serial numbers won't be available because those are obtained from SMART.
Can you put the output of "smartctl -a /dev/XXX" substituting a disk you have in the system that is connected to the 750? This will determine if SMART functions.
