Doc Text:
.Web console `Storage` page updates Usability testing showed that the _default mount point_ concept on the RHEL web console `Storage` page was hard to grasp, and led to a lot of confusion. With this update, the web console no longer offers a _Default_ choice when mounting a file system. Creating a new file system now always requires a specified mount point. Additionally, the web console now hides the distinction between the configuration (`/etc/fstab`) and the run-time state (`/proc/mounts`). Changes made in the web console always apply to both the configuration and the run-time state. When the configuration and the run-time state differ from each other, the web console shows a warning, and enable users to easily bring them back in sync.
