Fedora :: Cannot Mount Encrypted Partition?

Apr 11, 2011

I used Ubuntu for years now, but since the latest decisions got public I deceided to try something new: Fedora. I installed the system as a dualboot,Ubuntu and my old data. Because Fedora got installed inbetween of two partitions,ad to do the partitioning manually. I just made one partition /dev/sda4. During the installation process I got asked about the password for my /dev/sda1 partition. Of course, I entered it. So far so good.Now, everytime when I boot, the boot process stops and asks me for the password of the /dev/sda1 partition. However, the boot process does not go on, unless i press STRG+C.After the log in, I can also not access my data, by entering the password (GUI).The only way I can acces the data on that partition is:

Code:
su -
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/DEVICENAME luks-fedora

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot - Need To Mount Encrypted Partition?

May 2, 2010

Times like this Ubuntu makes me want to pull my hair out. When I enter my pass on the login screen, it brings up a "Could not update ICEauthority file" error and then goes to a black screen. I've tried to fix this problem for the past 2-3 hours (searching google, these forums, etc) and at this point, I just want the data off my drive so I can restart with a fresh install of Ubuntu. I used the "gsku nautilus" command to mount the disk from a Ubuntu Drive boot, but it's not letting me have access to the encrypted drive. Does anyone know of a work around for this?

OpenSUSE :: Mount Encrypted Partition With Bash Script?

Oct 14, 2010

I currently have a simple bash script set up via cron to backup my data (rsync) to an internal hard drive at regular intervals. I leave this "backup" hard drive unmounted, and it is mounted and unmounted as needed with the bash script. If I were to encrypt this "backup" drive (via Luks, or some other means), is there a way to get my backup script to work without me having to be there to enter a password?

Ubuntu :: Auto-mount Luks Encrypted Partition At Boot?

May 27, 2010

I'm having a problem auto-mounting a new luks partition. I have crypttab and fstab entries. I already have my primary encrypted partition (root) mounting at boot (from the install), but after creating this one manually, it does not open on boot. It auto-mounts when I run the following command manually after boot: sudo luksOpen /dev/disk/by-uuid/<uuid> mycrypt

/etc/crypttab entry:

Software :: Configure Pam_mount To Automatically Mount An Encrypted Partition ?

Apr 3, 2010

I'm trying to configure pam_mount to automatically mount an encrypted partition (luks) and formatted to NTFS. I typed the command in the configuration file:

Quote:

<volume user="user" fstype="crypt" path="/dev/sda6" mountpoint="~/dane2" options="defaults,umask=000" />

But the partition is mounted read-only. There is some way to mount the partition rw mode?

Debian :: Reverting RAID 1 - Mount Partition As Standalone Encrypted Disk

Feb 11, 2011

I have 2 identical disks originally configured as a pair for a server. Each of the disks has 2 partitions dev/sdb1,dev/sdb2. The sdb1 partitions I had configured as a raid1 mirror. The sdb2 partitions were non-raid and used as extra misc. Space. Further, the raid setup is also encrypted using dm-crypt luks. Now I want to redeploy each of the disks for new purposes. One of the disks i want to deploy exactly as before (keeping the partitions and content), however without being part of a raid array.

I've successfully deployed this disk into a new system and I am mounting the dev/sdb1 partition as dev/md0 because the disk is set to autodetect raid. Actually I am using cryptsetup and mounting with mapper. Can I get rid of the setting for auto detect on this partition without losing the data, or breaking the encryption? I just want to mount the partition as a standalone encrypted disk. Is it as simple as doing crypt setup luksOpen /dev/sdb1 then mounting it with mapper? Or do I need to change the partition in some way. Or do I simply continue to operate it as a 'broken' raid array?

Fedora Installation :: F15 Can't Mount Encrypted LVM?

May 24, 2011

I just replaced my Fedora 14 installation in which I have an encrypted LVM which contains /home and /tmp (no, I didn't back up ), when I boot I enter my password, and get dropped to the maintainance login a few minutes later. I'm wondering how I can mount my /home from the Live system so I can just back up over the network.

I haven't worked with LVM very often so I'm out of my depths on this.

This is my partition layout as reported by the installer: screenshot

Edit: upon boot the system tells me that /dev/mapper/logvol01 and /dev/mapper/logvol00 don't exist

Edit2: Nevermind, Disk Utility is smarter than I am.

Fedora :: Recovering An Encrypted Partition?

Apr 8, 2010

I have been using fedora 12 for last 6 months, recently I bought an external USB hard drive of 320 GB capacity. I made 2 partitions using the Disk Utility in Fedora. I encrypted the first partition as it was supposed to hold a lot of sensitive data, and yes it did have. Now I had to change my OS to AV linux for some audio-video editing work which wasnt being done properly on fedora due to some issue beyond my knowledge. now the problem is my encrypted partition is not accessible in my new installation. I see an empty space on my /dev/sda1. although no change to partition data has been done and the data on the second partition /dev/sda2 is easily accessible. when putting the drive on automount, is does not ask me for the password and neither does it show me the data. I have tried fdisk and sme other utilities but have failed to get my drive unencrypted.

Fedora :: Browse Encrypted LVM2 - Unable To Mount Location

Aug 10, 2009

I have no idea what I'm doing so here goes: I installed Fedora and clicked the "encrypted" box during the process. What I want to do now is "browse" the volume using "File Browser" but I only get messages like, "Unable to mount location, org.freedesktop.DeviceKit.Disks.Error.Failed: Not a mountable file system". Why cannot I not see the files? I have the password. I would like to be able to move, delete, rename, etc files but that seems impossible because I cannot access the drive.

I already generated the keyfile and added it to the LUKS LVM partition.Right now, on bootup I get a nice GUI to enter my 40 character password which is nice but a little tedious What do i need to modify for the system to automatically unlock the partition with the keyfile that is stored on the /boot partition

Fedora :: 13 - Disable LUKS-encrypted Partition From Automount?

Aug 30, 2010

I have encrypted a partition while installing Fedora 13, and I need to disable its automount - I will mount those manually.

But even though I commented out the corresponding line in /etc/fstab, I am still asked for the passphrase for the partition at startup.

How to completely disable this behaviour - and how to mount the partition manually afterwards?

Software :: Mount Error: Can't Mount An Encrypted Volume With An Overlaying Ext3 FS

Jun 6, 2010

I created a encrypted volume on top of software raid1. These are my steps:

1. Create logical partition on sda

2. Create logical partition on sdb (same size)

3. Change type to partition to 'fd' for both partitions

4. Check that the both partitions are same size and type
fdisk -l /dev/sda && fdisk -l /dev/sdb

5. partprobe

6. Make sure there are no remains from previous RAID installations on /dev/sdb by running:
mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sda6
mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdb6

7. mdadm --create /dev/md4 --level=1 --raid-disks=2 /dev/sda6 /dev/sdb6

8. watch cat /proc/mdstat

9. update mdadm.conf
mdadm --examine --scan | grep mdx >> /etc/mdadm.conf

10. Load twofish module
[root@localhost ~]# modprobe twofish

11. # cryptsetup -y -c twofish-cbc-essiv:sha256 create ftdata /dev/md4
Enter passphrase:
Verify passphrase:

12. mkfs.ext3 -b 4096 -R stride=8 /dev/mapper/ftdata

13. mkdir /ftdata

14. Mount the encrypted volume: mount -O noatime /dev/mapper/ftdata /ftdata

It mounts successfully this first time. When I cd /ftdata, I can see the lost+found dir

Now, I unmount the volume
cd ~

Code:
umount /ftdata
cryptsetup remove ftdata

And now, if I try to setup my encrypted volume like this:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# cryptsetup create ftdata /dev/md4
Enter passphrase:
mount -O noatime /dev/mapper/ftdata /ftdata
I get this error:
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

[Code].....

It mounts successfully this first time. When I cd /ftdata, I can see the lost+found dir

So why is it that I can't mount my encrypted volume after the first time? I am giving the correct password when it asks to.

Fedora Security :: Unlock A LUKS Encrypted Root Partition Via Ssh?

There are a few pages from google with the debians variants, archived by putting dropbear into initrd.

I like to do that with my fedora/centos remote servers, but struggle to find any resources specific to it. Anyone has any suggestions and thoughts as to what might be a suitable way forward?

Fedora Security :: Image An Entire Luks System Encrypted Volume And The Rest Of The Used HDD, The MBR And /boot Partition?

Jan 21, 2009

I need a FREE solution that can image an entire Luks system encrypted volume and the rest of the used HDD, the MBR and /boot partition. Note: MBR and /boot are not encrypted. Note 2: I want to be able to restore entire drive from image with only a couple of steps. Note 3: Destination HDD space is a factor. Image file must be compressed and the image file must be around 40 to 50 GB or less. The smaller the image the better.

I have used clonezilla live cd before but not for encrypted volumes. I know you can install it in Linux. But, I don't know how to configure it after installation. I would be very happy if someone could tell me how to configure clonezilla in Fedora. How to guides are also welcome. I have one more question. If I image the encrypted volumes and all the stuff I mentioned above while logged in to Fedora, and I restore the drive from the image, will the recovered drive still be encrypted?

Fedora :: 15 Can't Mount Selected Partition

Jun 3, 2011

I installed 15. I have reformatted the 500mb /boot partition, didn't touch the swap partition, formatted the / partition. Trying to boot, I receive a "cannot mount selected partition". This is a fresh install. I rebooted into the Live CD to do some FS Checks, and got kernal crash, black screen, lots of kernal output while in live CD trying to do FS checks. The only line that looks like it holds any info that may be relevant is the last of the lines that says: Kernal Panic - Not Syncing: Fatal exception interupt PID 1161, comm:irq/21-0000:01: tainted: g d (kernal version) Panic+0x91/0x19c

I did an FS check on /boot and it came back fine. I did an FS check on /, and it came back fine. But then I told it to do an FS check on swap and got the warning that swap is currently mounted, and that if I proceed, it could cause serious system damage, and asked me if I wanted to proceed. I chose no, and it crashed.

---------- Post added at 02:59 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:42 AM ----------

wait, i think i found the problem. It APPARENTLY installed /boot as ext4. Reinstalling now. Will update momentarily...

---------- Post added at 03:06 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:59 AM ----------

Nope, i explicity made sure i installed ext3 on boot this time, and it still gives the same boot error, AND i KEEP getting that kernel crash.

Red Hat / Fedora :: How To Mount EXT3 Partition

I just made a new storage partition and formatted it as Ext3. Now, this particular partition is shown and can be read at the terminal "fdisk -l". However, unlike in my Mint 7 partition, it does not show in my Fedora 10.

Code: [jun@localhost ~]$ sudo fdisk -l
[sudo] password for jun:
Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xc5e3f820

[Code]....

This partition can also shows be seen in gparted in Fedora. However, even in the "Places" tab, it does not show.

General :: Upgrading To Fedora 8 - Cannot Mount Partition

May 3, 2010

Not sure if I should consider myself a newbie or not, as I have been using fedora 1 for some years, but I only installed it as per the manual and then used it to web surf, didn't delve into the guts of linux. The other forums seem to be speaking languages largely beyond me. Anyway, I find I need to upgrade now. I have tried upgrading to fed 8 from the DVD, but I get the message 'cannot mount /dev/hda1', which is my windows partition.

Looking at the release notes , it says fed 8 expects all partitons to be labeled, as if this is a new requirement. Using /sbin/blkid I see hda1 is not labeled. Is this the problem? How can I label it? Looking at a 'how to' site, I found e2label and tune2fs, but it seems they only work with ext2 or ext3 partitions. In the bigger picture, I am expecting too much to upgrade 1 to 8? Should I give up and just install fed 8 from scratch?

I finished with the LFS system and now I want to destroy the partition and reclaim all of the 250GB. So i simply ran fdisk /dev/sdb and deleted the 2 Linux partitions ( one 83 and one swap). I then created a new partition as primary partition #1. fdisk appears to see the entire disk....I'm able to start at cylinder 1 and end at 30401 which is 250GB, however when i mount the partition it's shows as only 50G.....What the hell is going on here???

Fedora :: Mount The Ext4 Partition At Boot?

Jun 17, 2011

I'm trying to set up my Fedora 15 installation to automatically mount (with all privileges needed for read/write access w/o a password prompt) an ext4 partition on the same HDD. Below is the output of sudo fdisk -l.

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders, total 312581808 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

[code]....

Partition table entries are not in disk order I'm trying to automount /dev/sda8, I believe. I'll check that when I've rebooted to by Ubuntu partition, 'cause that's where I know how to do it. I tried to use pysdm, since that's what I used to do the same thing in Ubuntu, but it wasn't found by the Fedora package manager.
