Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting Encrypted Partitions ?

Nov 24, 2010

I've created some encrypted partitions using Disk Utility, and would like them to be automatically mounted when Ubuntu starts up. Is there a guide to this anywhere?

I've gathered that it involves /etc/crypttab and possibly /etc/init.d/cryptdisks, but haven't had much success so far.

Ideally, some of the partitions would mount early in the boot process, while some of them can mount after I've logged in.

Fedora :: Disable Plymouth Mounting Of Encrypted Partitions?

Jan 23, 2010

I just updated a system to Fedora 12. It has the same partition setup as the previous Fedora 11, but now when booting it pauses with a padlock icon next to a text entry box.I'm assuming it's trying to get my password to mount the encrypted partitions I have on the drive.

However, most of the time when I'm using that computer, I don't want those partitions mounted, and I would prefer to do a luksOpen/mount manually during those times I need the data thereon. Is there a way to get plymouth to ignore those encrypted partitions while it's booting, so that bootup doesn't pause for user input? I have an empty /etc/crypttab and the partitions in question are not in /etc/fstab.
For anyone who's looking at this, pass "rd_NO_LUKS" on the command line to disable the initrd from looking for encrypted partitions to try to mount.

OpenSUSE :: Cannot Find The Configuration Setting For Mounting Encrypted Partitions

Aug 1, 2010

I have an encrypted partition which shows up in Dolphin file browser.But as a non-root user, I cannot unlock and mount it. A message in Dolphin comes up saying that a policy prohibits this. As root, this unlocking of the encrypted partition goes normally. I cannot find the setting to change in KDE perhaps;

Ubuntu :: Lucid Automatically Mounting Windows Partitions?

May 16, 2010

Fairly new to Ubuntu (started with Karmic), now dualbooting Lucid and Windows 7. Lucid is automatically mounting my NTSC partitions, which is pretty convenient since I store all my media there, but I recently deleted one of the partitions and just extended the other one. Now Lucid is still trying to automatically mount the partition that no longer exists and giving me an error message every time I boot up. Not really a big deal, just a minor annoyance, but I'm wondering what I do to make it realize the partition is gone.

Ubuntu :: Ext4 Partitions Not Mounting Either Automatically Or Manually?

Oct 21, 2010

I have various drives and partitions that I have been mounting through fstab, but sometimes I had to do it manually, but now, I can't get them to mount at all. At first I thought it might be a disk failure, but booting to a Live CD shows all the drives working fine. when the entries are added into fstab, $mount -l shows them as mounted to their relevant mount points, but the data does't show in either terminal or dolphin?

Typing $umount /dev/drive always returns /dev/drive not mounted.

When I comment out the entries in fstab and reboot and try a manual mount, I always get /dev/drive already mounted or /mount/point busy. $mount -l does not show any mount entry points for the drive. My /home/user partition is now full as I can't save data on the other drives, so I don't know if this is an issue. Also I use a mixture of encrypted partitions and non encrypted partitions, but this wasn't an issue before. Checking some of the logs didn't show any errors. The problem seemed to start when gdd was saving data to a partition mount point I thought was mounted but wasn't. I have since removed that data and even created a new mount point.

Ubuntu :: Mounting Encrypted Raid From Terminal?

Jun 4, 2011

I have a RAID array that contains an encrypted volume that I setup using Disk Utility. What I want to do is mount this volume from the terminal and therefore be able to mount at login (as the pass phrase is saved). At the moment I have to manually click on the volume in Nautilus first before using. I've been trying to use the following command to no avail:

Code:

gvfs-mount -mount /dev/md1

which simply returns "Error mounting location: volume doesn't implement mount"

Ubuntu :: Mounting External Encrypted HDD With Ext3 Filesystem

Jan 20, 2010

I have a external HDD with eSATA and USB connectors available. I want to use this HDD to store my backups. The HDD should be encrypted (my main system is as well).

So here is what I did so far:
1) I used the following code to create the encrypted LUKS partition with EXT3 Filesystem:
Code:
cryptsetup -c aes-xts-plain -s 512 luksFormat /dev/sdb1
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb1 luks
mkfs.ext3 /dev/mapper/luks
The system always hang when I executed the "mkfs.ext3..." command, so I switched the HDD from eSATA to USB and then it worked fine.

2) When I switched on the ext. HDD the first time, the drive was recognized automatically and Nautilus asked for the password. I typed it in as checked the checkbox to remember the password in the future. For the backup I use a nice script that I found in another forum, where I can define a mountpoint and then the script will check for previous backups and only make a incremental backup based of the latest version. The script also mounts the drive automatically. In order to always have the same mountpoint, I want to make an entry in the /etc/fstab using the UUID of the ext. HDD.

Whatever I tried, it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong? Here is my current /etc/fstab
Code:
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# / was on /dev/mapper/ubuntu-root during installation
UUID=2ea47421-73ce-4c66-9606-8a1db81ae640 / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=dbdeb793-1d4e-43ea-8986-7b37fdbc9674 /boot ext3 relatime 0 2
# /home was on /dev/mapper/ubuntu-home during installation
UUID=42702091-83e6-43eb-aad1-108f43eedf9d /home ext3 relatime 0 2
# swap was on /dev/mapper/ubuntu-swap during installation
UUID=e225bcf9-908b-4226-a963-6b02ee658df1 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
# Eintrag wegen iPhone
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=125,devmode=666,nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0
# external HDD
UUID=913977f7-8fa6-416f-af79-b5f913b68f53 /media/backup-hdd ext3 noauto,users 0 0
I made the "none /proc/bus/usb..." entry because it was recommended to ensure correct behaviour of the iPhone. Not sure if I need it though.

I created the mountpoint with this command:
Code:
sudo mkdir /media/backup-hdd
Now it seems the mountpoints owner is not root - strange right?
Code:
2 4 drwxr-xr-x 3 michael michael 4096 2010-01-15 02:45 backup-hdd
How should I mount this drive correctly? It will be automounted as every USB device, but that should not be the case. I want the script to mount and unmount the drive.

Ubuntu Security :: Different PWD For Login And Mounting Encrypted /home

Nov 13, 2010

I've just reinstalled my box with an encrypted home (used the encrypt home option when installing). I have a query in this regard - suppose I lose the box. Won't it be possible for someone to drop into root, reset my passwd and then access my /home. Is there anyway of having a different passwd for accessing /home? My ~ is on a different partition from /.

OpenSUSE Install :: Encrypted FS Not Mounting On Boot?

Feb 6, 2011

I haven't used encryption previously but through that for better security, I would enable it on one of my disks. I went though the process and when done, copied data to the device etc. My house had a powercut the other day and I noticed that the device did not mount automatically upon restart. Unfortunately, I have forgotten the de-cryption password and have lost access to my data. Is there a way of either recovering my password or getting the partition to mount without the password so I can access the data, copy/back up and then re-create the partition without encryption?

Hardware :: Mounting Encrypted LVM - Device Not Valid

Feb 13, 2011

I recently had one of my computers motherboard die and so I moved the hard drive to another linux machine so I could access the data. The hard drive is installed correctly and I've mounted several logical volumes on the drive ok, but I'm having trouble with the two volumes which were encrypted. The LVM Gui in Fedora is ignorant to any encrypted LVMs so I looked around to see if others have solved this problem and found the following command:
# cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/vg_delldesk/lv_home luks-fedora

My Logical volume container is vg_delldesk and the encrypted volume is lv_home - when I execute this command I get the following error:
Device /dev/vg_delldesk/lv_home is not a valid LUKS device.
I have access to the root partition from the old box so the config files are there to reference the old setup if needed. My current box is Fedora 14 x_64, I have dm_crypt mod installed in the kernel as well.

Ubuntu Installation :: Alternate CD On USB - Natty Not Mounting Encrypted Volume?

May 8, 2011

Alternate CD on USB - Natty not mounting Encrypted Volume I get initramfs prompt. I have a Dell Inspiron Duo. I've tried to install Natty i386 and AMD64. I set my / (root) and swap under LVM under an encrypted volume. Used manual partitioning. But after reboot, I successfully enter the passphrase, swap and root are not mounted.

Now, I've had this working with 10.10. System seemed a little quirky after the upgrading it to Natty. So, I wanted a fresh install. Used Unetbootin to run ISO from USB and also from one of my other partitions. I've tried installing at least 10 times, some repeat, some variations.

CentOS 5 :: Encrypted 4 Partitions - Entering Password Just Once?

Feb 28, 2010

I just installed CentOS 5.4 (x86_64) and I encrypted my /home /var /tmp and /mnt/Storage partitions, along with my swap partition. My only complaint is that when I boot, I have to enter my password 4 times, and I did not pick a short password. The password is the same for all 4 partitions. Is there anyway I can set things up so I can just type my password once? Once I get everything set up, I won't be booting that often, but right now it is a PIA.

Fedora :: Creating And Mounting Encrypted USB Hard Drive

Jul 12, 2010

I am looking for a guide for Fedora 13 that tells me how to:

1. Create an encrypted partition on an an external USB hard drive

2. Tells me how to setup Fedora to ask me for the passphrase when I plug in the drive

3. Automounts the hard drive to a set location

The guide should deal with the situation that the computer can mount without declaring the external hard drive is not there.At present my attempt at mounting my Samsung Story USB2 hard drives does not meet criteria 2 and 3.

Networking :: Mounting Windows Share Without Encrypted Passwords?

Aug 4, 2010

We have a Windows server at work that has several shared directories. For whatever reason the lab administrator has required clear-text passwords for it. There is a registry tweak for Windows boxes. Nautilus can't mount shares because it is trying to use an ecrypted password. Ironically enough the Windows VM I have running in Virtual Box can mount the shares.... smbclient can see the server and shares if I specify a clear-text password option.

Fedora :: Grub2 Support Booting Off Of Encrypted Partitions?

Debian :: Make System Ask Password For Encrypted Partitions Only Once Not For Each Of Them?

May 29, 2011

I have installed debian 6 on two of my laptops. During installation I chose to encrypt my partitions (swap, root and home). Now I find it annoying that during boot up I'm asked for password, for each of these partions seperately. I have given same password for all three of them. How can I make the system ask for the password only once. I know it can be done because on fedora it was like that before.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Unmount Encrypted USB Flash Drive When Device Is Unplugged?

Apr 21, 2010

I formatted the USB flash drive using Karmic's Format Disk utility (right-click on a volume, select "Format..."), and selected "Encrypted, compatible with Linux (FAT)" from the "Type" drop-down menu.It mounts correctly when I plug it in, and I can access the files just fine.When I unplug the Flash drive without using the 'Safely Remove Drive' option, the icon on my desktop changes its name to '2.0 GB Encrypted', instead of disappearing and unmounting like my unencrypted Flash drives do.

I would like to have encrypted Flash drive treated in the same way as my unencrypted Flash drives, which disappear and unmount when unplugged, even if the 'Remove Safely' menu option isn't used. What can I do to accomplish this?NOTES:When I plug the encrypted Flash drive in, the following line shows up in the output of 'mount'. 'secure' is the name I gave the disk during the format process:

Code:
/dev/mapper/devkit-disks-luks-uuid-302db16c-c6e2-4dd9-a259-436437c76475-uid1005 on /media/secure type vfat

OpenSUSE :: Disk Imaging Software That Supports Encrypted LVM Partitions?

Sep 5, 2011

I can see from /var/log/messages error messages and weird crashes that the disk in my laptop is on the way out. I plan to replace it but to do this I'd rather not have to install everything again.My laptop has these partitions:Windows Recovery (10GB)Windows 7 (NTFS 96.6GB)Linux /boot (ext4 100MB)Linux LVM (encrypted, 143GB)I need software that will allow me to create an image (or images) of all these partitions, save the image(s) to a USB hard drive and restore from those images once I've put the new, blank, hard drive into the laptop. Does anyone know of software (either open source or commercial pay-ware) or a technique to do this?

Debian :: Recovering Grub After Windows Installation - Encrypted Partitions And LVM

Nov 4, 2010

I'm running Debian Squeeze AMD64 with full disk encryption and LVM. After reinstalling Windows 7 I lost GRUB from the MBR. I managed to install GRUB after following this guide and using an Ubuntu 10.04 graphical installation disc, but I only get to a GRUB CLI when booting, so I can't actually choose an OS there.

I tried following this guide but I'm stuck after "# Mount the partitions to /mnt/root" and don't know what to do.

Does anyone know how I can fix GRUB so I get to choose between Debian and Windows 7 there?

Fedora Installation :: 15 - LUKS Encrypted Logical Volumes Not Mounting On Boot

May 26, 2011

I have a setup that looks like this

and I'm dumped into recovery mode. However, if I remove these mounts from /etc/fstab via comments, I can wait for the system to boot (which it does very quickly) then mount the mapper devices myself. So what is going on? Has something changed wrt logical volumes, or is this just systemd? I can live with manual mounting, but any advice on resolving the automatic mounting situation would be great.

Server :: Secure - Filesystem And Partitions To Be Encrypted But Without The Need To Insert Some Code When Rebooting

Apr 26, 2011

I have implemented a web application on Linux that I want to deploy and sell to customers. I want to sell ready systems including the hardware. The application is written in PHP/MySQL. What I am searching to achieve is :

1) Find a way so that filesystem and partitions to be encrypted but without the need to insert some code when rebooting. So that if someone gets out the hard disks and attach to another system, cannot have any access to my files or settings. And of course when rebooting (e.g. after a power failure) encryption to be applied automatically.

2) I know that there are ways to bypass root password on a Linux system. Can all these ways be unassigned ? I want the only way to have access to system, to be by using the root password and nothing else.

I have thought of using a virtual server instead of a physical one (like deploying a virtualbox server) but still would like this to be the most secure possible including not only remote but also local access to system.

Ubuntu :: Mounting Ext4 Drives/partitions In 6.06?

Apr 5, 2010

I just recently found an iso for 6.06 and installed it on an old pc of mine that already had 8.04 and crunchbang on it. crunchbang is on an ext4 formatted partition.

When I setup 6.06, it asked me what i wanted to mount my drives as, so i told it to mount the ext4 system as hda1.

whenever 6.06 boots, it tries to mount hda1 but can't because it doesn't recognize ext4.

What I am asking is this: is there a deb or a package out there I can install to make 6.06 recognize ext4? if not, how can i make it so that 6.06 does not want to mount hda1?

I can get past the initial error message and into the desktop, so 6.06 does work.

Ubuntu :: Mounting Partitions - Get NFTS Configuration To Run

Nov 22, 2010

This is my first time using Ubuntu (though I've been interested in it for about a year). I decided to dual-boot my Acer AspireOne netbook running Windows 7 starter with Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook version. I am in the process of looking through all of the information in terms of getting use to the system, but right now I am trying to figure out how to access my files on the Windows half of the computer. I've been following the instructions here: [URL] but I am unable to get NFTS configuration to run, so I moved onto PySDM which appeared to work just fine except now when I boot up it gives me the error: "Unable to mount media/sda3" Press S to skip mounting process or M for manual recovery

Since I am still very much a newbie when it comes to terminal commands, I stayed away from the manual recovery and pressing S just puts me back into the welcome screen so I can log in. I've been searching the forums and I can't find much on it. Maybe I am missing a really important factor here? Also, in some version of the instructions, the other partitions are supposed to become viewable once mounted. I went into looking through the files using PySDM, but what I saw was mostly greyed out files...
