You can also use the tune2fs to tune the ex2/ext3 filesystem parameter. For example, if you want to change the Filesystem volume name, you can do it as shown below.

# tune2fs -l /dev/sda1 | grep volume
Filesystem volume name:   /home/database

# tune2fs -L database-home /dev/emcpowera1
tune2fs 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)

# tune2fs -l /dev/sda1 | grep volume
Filesystem volume name:   database-home
