md_doc_help_kdb-fstab(3) Create a new fstab entry


This command is used to create a new fstab entry. Due to the unique format of fstab entries, it is not possible to set individual elements of new fstab entries. This command is used to gather all the data needed to create a single fstab entry in order to bypass the issue of not being able to set individual elements. This command will create the new entry with a name of ZZZNewFstabName which should then automatically be renamed by the fstab plugin.
