Confusion between mountpoint given by omv and that by lsblk

  • OMV 5 on a raspberry 4 with sd card having two partitions labelled boot and spare and a usb disk with single partition (mountpoint /). OMV filesystem lists sd card boot partition having mountpoint /dev/disk-by-label-boot. Using Putty lsblk -o name,mountpoint,label,uuid get sd boot partition mountpoint is /boot Which is correct?

  • Which is correct?

    both. One is the device and the other is the filesystem mountpoint.

  • I thought only filesystems are mounted. You can't mount a device can you?

    A device in Linux can mean more than one thing. A filesystem is usually created on a block device. So, the mount point /boot is pointing at the filesystem's device file (/dev/sda1 for example). /dev/disk/by-label/boot is just a symlink to /dev/sda1.

  • My understanding is that the directory /srv/dev-disk-by-label/boot is linked to the symlink /dev/disk/by-label/boot in the <mntent> entry of the file OMV config.xml The mount point is specified in the file fstab There are two entries for the the boot partition in fstab One (under >>> openmediavault) gives the mount point as /srv/dev-disk-by-label-boot, and the other gives /boot Which one does OMV take as the mount point?

    There should not be an entry for boot in the >>> openmediavault section that OMV maintains. If there is, you must have mounted that partition in the web interface (didn't think you could but haven't tried).
