  • Display an fstab compatible output based on a volume label:

genfstab -L {{path/to/mount_point}}

  • Display an fstab compatible output based on a volume UUID:

genfstab -U {{path/to/mount_point}}

  • A usual way to generate an fstab file, requires root permissions:

genfstab -U {{/mnt}} >> {{/mnt/etc/fstab}}

  • Append a volume into an fstab file to mount it automatically:

genfstab -U {{path/to/mount_point}} | sudo tee -a /etc/fstab
