10.5: Mount a partition or volume on demand
Authored by: sjk on Aug 12, '09 01:37:36PM
fstab obviously predates 10.5, but I can't test this hint on a pre-10.5 system, so I don't know if it works as written on 10.4, etc.
I've used fstab entries like:
UUID=2F7B7609-9937-310A-87D2-810C883AAF87	/Users	hfs	rw
for mounting separate /Users volumes at least since 10.3 and maybe earlier. That way I avoid the issue of the mount point on those systems being saved as /Volumes/Users in files that might be used on others systems when /Users is (by default) on the startup volume and /Volumes/Users doesn't exist. I posted a similar comment a few years ago: here
