Tableau Resource Monitoring Tool 2020.2 Fails To Install On A Server With Dynamic Disks Or Storage Spaces

Tableau Resource Monitoring Tool 2020.2 fails to install with error:
Error 0x80070643: Fatal error during installation
Tableau Resource Monitoring Tool 2020.2.0
Option 1 Temporarily unmount/disable the Dynamic Disk drive to install RMT and then remount. Disable the dynamic disk in Control Panel -> Device Manager -> Disk Drives. Making sure to check the Volumes tab to confirm it is the correct disk. Complete the install and then re-enable the disk again in Device Manager. (This will only work for a disk that isn't the primary)
Environments may vary and IT could be involved to assist in this process for prevention of data loss.
A new script added to Resource Monitoring Tool 2020.2, tunePostgres, runs the Get-Disk command which does not recognize Dynamic Disks and causes the error. This script is run after the initdb sequence within the installation of Resource Monitoring Tool for the postgres_binaries.msi.
