Added new drive it appears in /srv/ as UUID

  • I have several drives in the system and they are listed in /srv/ as:

    144ab994-0e0f-4a42-a06b-f37e84454803 (MergerFS)

    803befbe-2c10-4331-9b07-1691582f4de1 (Remote NFS mount)

    dev-disk-by-label-NVME (OS drive)

    dev-disk-by-label-Disk1 (WD 4TB drive)

    dev-disk-by-label-Disk2 (WD 4TB drive)

    dev-disk-by-label-Disk3 (WD 4TB drive)

    dev-disk-by-label-Disk4 (WD 4TB drive)

    dev-disk-by-label-Parity (5TB USB SnapRAID parity drive)

    I added a new USB 3TB drive today, added it to the MergerFS pool and SnapRAID.

    It has appeared as follows:


    All drives have been added under OMV 5 i.e. no upgrading from OMV 4.

    Why is the new drive mounted by UUID when the older ones are mounted by label?

    All working just curious to know.
