I think there will be no issue but i do not know how you will going to mount them. As for mounting these partition you need to write another script. Also it will mount current partitions which were already mounted at booting.

Best Regards.


Waalaikum-us-Salam.

Although there are no chances of mounting a partition twice, but if you have any idea, please share it here.
Also I wonder what will happen if one partition is mounted on more than one mount points.

If you mount a partition which is already mount, e.g. /home and you have remount it at /old/home again then if you have delete any file from /old/home by mistake it will be deleted from /home. Also if you mound partition on / then it will only display content of mounted partition and you can not umount / partition.

So does it mean that if I know what is mounted where, there are no chances of a disaster?
