Any idea?

Thank you!
Hi Achim,

as such persistent names are already set up per default (albeit not as /dev/sd*), you might look into using names from i.e. /dev/disk/by-uuid (which makes the name persist to the uuid of the file system) or /dev/disk/by-label (persist to the label given to the file system).

Persisting to the hardware device would be possible, too (/dev/disk/by-path) - but as you changed just that, it wouldn't have helped in your case
