As of this writing, this requires a fairly recent version of util-linux, but is much simpler than the previous alternatives. Basically, lsblk gives a nice, human readable interface to all the blkid stuff. (Of course, I wouldn't recommend this if you're going to be parsing the output.) This command takes all the fun out of the previous nifty pipelines, but I felt I ought to at least mention it as an alternative since it is the most practical.

`blkid` is an interface to libuuid - it can read Device Mapper, EVMS, LVM, MD, and regular block devices.

-c /dev/null - Do not use cached output from /etc/blkid.tab or /etc/blkid/blkid.tab (RHEL)

-i - Display I/O Limits (aka I/O topology) information (not available in RHEL)

-p - Low-level superblock probing mode (not available in RHEL)

TEST_UUID=$(blkid /dev/sda6 | sed -rn "s/^.*UUID=\"([a-z0-9]{8}-[a-z0-9]{4}-[a-z0-9]{4}-[a-z0-9]{4}-[a-z0-9]{12})\".*/\1/p")
