You also need to look at grub configuration, do not forget it.

Careful: the developers and the openSUSE documentation recommendation is
not to use such names, because they are not guaranteed to remain the
same. They can change from boot to boot, even on the same session after
hibernation. Some people do not experience this, so they think that it
is OK to use them. Others, like me, experience those changes every day.
Normally, sda is my boot disk. Today it is sdb, and sda is today the
disk caddy used for backups.

The ‘id’ changes, the ‘uuid’ does not. There is a difference in the

Careful. The official recommendation is NOT to use names such as sda,
sdb, etc. On upgrades, YaST sometimes sees these names and aborts,
telling you to change the names before trying again.
