[Problem] Unable to create partitions from the GUI

Problem
New install of Openfiler v2.99.1, trying to create a new partition in /dev/sda, clicking the ‘create’ button does nothing, just refreshes the page.

From the cli:
parted
unit cyl
print
mkpart
[name?] // click enter
[file system type? ext2] ext3
[start?] // here, type one cylinder up from the end of the last partition shown by the print command, and space, and then the ending cylinder (for the entire disk, enter the number shown in the print command under the Model, on the line “Disk /dev/sda : ”
print // see the new partition
q
pvcreate /dev/sda4

After this, Openfiler should see the new partition from the GUI.
