Re: Using UUID in fstab

It is a good idea, but I ran into a problem using such setup with
RAID1.  I had two disks with RAID1 and one huge file system.  One day
the machine booted without the RAID starting as it should, and a
random disk was mounted instead.  I did not discover the problem until
I rebooted a second time, and by chance the other disk was mounted,
missing quite a few of the files only present on the first disk.

So, it is not always safe to use UUID.

Happy hacking,
