Learning to create file systems and persistently mount them across reboots is an essential skill for Linux administrators. In this lab, we format two new system disks and create filesystems on the newly-created disk partitions. Then we create the directories for the mount points and configure /etc/fstab to persistently mount the file systems so they are available on system startup.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
