It looks like it should work if you have the correct uuid and mount
point. You don't need to use uuid numbers in fstab, you can use actual
devices (i.e. /dev/sda in your case).
/dev/sda /sonstiges ext3 defaults 0 2
Also, you don't have to reboot to test it. First, make sure it's
unmounted (sudo umount /sontiges). Next, make a change in /etc/fstab,
and in a command terminal, "sudo mount -a" to test it. You'll see any
error messages in the terminal.
