I upgraded from 8.0.0 to 8.0.1b1 then to 8.0.1b2 and needed to delete a dataset but it was not possible in the GUI. I ran "zfs destroy -r datasetname" from the command line and now the dataset still shows up on the GUI and is not able to be removed. The specific error I am receiving is "cannot open 'dataset': dataset does not exist". Any help with this would be appreciated.

To resolve this I manually created a dataset with the same name through the CLI and then was able to delete it in the GUI and it disappear.
