    I just got a new dedicated server from my provider.
    When I went to edit the fstab file to add 'noexec,nosuid', I found that the it has mount point entries as

    UUID=afdc7615-de79-47a6-ab6b-441c650a8580 / ext4 defaults,usrquota 1 1
    UUID=b1b423ed-957e-4910-bf7d-fa6ecf8d5b52 /boot ext4 defaults 1 2
    UUID=3032fa43-67ab-4d93-8b49-a37c0afe700f /home ext4 defaults,usrquota 1 2
    UUID=1b3b54a6-2c16-48bd-b241-58ba3ffb6f3b /tmp ext4 defaults 1 2
    UUID=5467e8a9-d9a8-4d56-8608-93e8af241234 /usr ext4 defaults,usrquota 1 2
    UUID=922ed1ef-66ff-4a93-85b5-76e6437cb5d0 /var ext4 defaults,usrquota 1 2
    UUID=f901ac71-26e5-4fbe-bf23-e67b05188b6b swap swap defaults 0 0
    tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0

    on my previous servers I had them as

    /dev/sda2 / ext3 defaults,usrquota 1 1
    /dev/sda1 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    /dev/sda8 /home ext3 defaults,usrquota 1 2
    /dev/sda7 /tmp ext3 defaults,noexec,nosuid 1 2
    /dev/sda6 /usr ext3 defaults,usrquota 1 2
    /dev/sda5 /var ext3 defaults,usrquota 1 2
    /dev/sda3 swap swap defaults 0 0

    Is it correct to have them as UID rather than DEV ?
