By using "noauto" the volume has to be manually mounted, is that right?

It should be just:
mount -U "e2f1534d-aecd-4f2a-a153-822ac4d73967"
What error are you getting?
Also, remember that the mount point should have the proper permissions:
ls -l /media
And now that I think, not sure if "/media" is a good place to put a
"statically" mounted volume, I would better create a dedicated mount
point outside that folder for such purpose.
