Convert /etc/fstab to use UUID's for any matching /dev/sd* device.
cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak
while read line; do
drive=$(echo $line | awk '{print $1}')
if [[ $drive =~ /dev/sd.* ]];then
uuid=$(blkid | grep $drive | sed 's/.*\sUUID="\([a-zA-Z0-9-]*\)".*/\1/g')
sed -i "s:$drive:UUID=$uuid:g" /etc/fstab
done < /etc/fstab
