I have 2 identical USB HDD drives connected to my Linux machine (Debian Wheezy).
They have absolutely identical UUID.
[sudo] password for darkduck:
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="Elements" UUID="1ADC8962DC893951" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sdc1: LABEL="Elements" UUID="1ADC8962DC893951" TYPE="ntfs"
/etc/fstab contains records for /dev/sdb1 -> /mount_point_A
and /dev/sdc1 -> mount_point_B
However, sometimes they got mounted other way round, /dev/sdb1 -> mount_point_B
. I have to reboot the system (maybe even several times) to make things right.
Is there a way to ensure that mounting goes to right point every time? I read about using UUID for that, but, as I said, that is not an option with identical UUIDs.
