I recently used GParted to delete a Swap partition on my Linux server so I could extend my primary partition. In doing so, the UUID changed of the disk and during boot, I was presented with a message A start job is running for dev-disk-by… which takes 90 seconds to then boot.
To fix this, I needed to change the UUID in
/etc/fstab of the Swap partition to match the newly recreated swap partition I made after extending my primary partition.
To get the UUID, I used
I then modified
/etc/fstab and replaced
UUID= ID with the output of the swap ID above.
UUID=bb64a5ed-17d4-2a39-5371-982d3ee2267e none swap sw
UUID=2078ee54-36e1-4a78-9867-798d3bb22673 none swap sw
I saved changes and rebooted. Now I have a boot time of less than 15 seconds.
