Hello List,

does one has to use the real device names in ring-building, like:
swift-ring-builder account.builder add z5- 100
Here it is sda4.

Can one use the partition UUID value or the mount point?

What if a drive has a fialure and a reboot of the system is done with
this failing drive. The subsequente drives after the failing drive will
move up with there drive letters, right? Won't this get the relations
between ring and drives mixed up?

Thank you for hints, Axel
