How to mount disk partition using UUID in Linux

If you have the following fstab entry and want to mount the partition using the UUID instead of device name, you just need to add UUID= followed by you partition's UUID in your fstab and you're done.

/dev/sda4           /home           ext4    defaults        0       2

The following is an example of same entry, using UUID.

UUID=860e4946-19a2-40ee-837a-4eca537b0ec1 /home           ext4    defaults        0       2
