Hi all, Can anyone enlighten me on this? Thanks

Surly I am missing something. There are two unique paths /home/michael/mountpoint1 and /home/michael/mountpoint2.

I agree /dev/mapper/centos-root uniquely locates a place where they might be located within, but not specifically where they are located within that space.

[michael@vps ~]$ mkdir /home/michael/devicefile1
[michael@vps ~]$ mkdir /home/michael/devicefile2
[michael@vps ~]$ mkdir /home/michael/mountpoint1
[michael@vps ~]$ mkdir /home/michael/mountpoint2
[michael@vps ~]$ sudo mount --bind /home/michael/devicefile1 /home/michael/mountpoint1
[michael@vps ~]$ sudo mount --bind /home/michael/devicefile2 /home/michael/mountpoint2
[michael@vps ~]$ cat /etc/mtab | grep mountpoint
/dev/mapper/centos-root /home/michael/mountpoint1 xfs rw,relatime,attr2,inode64,noquota 0 0
/dev/mapper/centos-root /home/michael/mountpoint2 xfs rw,relatime,attr2,inode64,noquota 0 0
[michael@vps ~]$
