I'm trying to setup
/etc/fstab to automatically mount two external NTFS hard drives on boot, and decided to use the UUIDs as reference instead of the device names.
blkid reports that both hard disks have the exact same UUID, so I am unable to add both entries into the file. Here's what it shows for the two disks:
/dev/sdc1: LABEL="Hank's Legacy" UUID="D8249BB8249B97D8" TYPE="ntfs" PARTUUID="61bf885b-01" /dev/sdb1: LABEL="Hank's Mainframe" UUID="D8249BB8249B97D8" TYPE="ntfs" PARTUUID="f865b797-01"
I read that
tune2fs cannot be used to modify the UUID for NTFS partitions, because this is technically not a UUID, but a serial number. Any suggestions on how I can mount the two disks without causing conflicts?
ddfor instance) ?
