[Solved] Issue with grep

Hi everyone
I am trying to write a script to check if file systems are mounted, and also validate the permission; then do a whole bunch of other things. I am facing a problem with grep. For example, if the mountpoints are:

/dev/XYZ_lv      /abc/XYZ      jfs2   Nov 25 20:36 rw,log=/dev/loglv04
/dev/XYZtrace_lv /abc/XYZ/folder1 jfs2   Nov 25 20:36 rw,log=/dev/loglv04
/dev/XYZdata3_lv /abc/XYZ/folder2 jfs2   Nov 25 20:36 rw,log=/dev/loglv04
/dev/XYZdata2_lv /abc/XYZ/folder3 jfs2   Nov 25 20:36 rw,log=/dev/loglv04

If I use:
mount | grep -x "/abc/XYZ"

I get the whole list, not only the first line. I also tried sed, but no success.

mount | grep "/abc/XYZ[^/]"

Exact string search in field 2
awk '$2=="/abc/XYZ"'
