I have one partition on my server running Fedora 15 that is encrypted. Whenever the server boots, it asks for the password in the boot process and does not proceed until this password has been entered.
I would like the system not
to mount the encrypted volume at boot, but rather let me mount it manually when needed.
Trying to achieve this, I edited /etc/fstab for the volume in question to replace "defaults" with "noauto", but that did not make any difference.
The fstab is currently as follows:
# Created by anaconda on Tue Oct 4 09:56:30 2011
# Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk'
# See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info
/dev/mapper/vg_majestix-lv_root / ext4 defaults 1 1
UUID=44fbda9a-0c4a-41df-add2-a24b46ea41c9 /boot ext4 defaults 1 2
/dev/mapper/luks-090c1edc-6056-4fa3-8ce1-ff3eb9623613 /export ext4 noauto 1 2
/dev/mapper/vg_majestix-lv_home /home ext4 defaults 1 2
/dev/mapper/vg_majestix-lv_swap swap swap defaults 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
This causes the volume in question (/export) not to be mounted, but LUKS still asks for the encrypted password at boot, which tells me I need to edit something else elsewhere...
If anyone could kindly point me towards what/where to change in order for /export not to be mounted at boot, I would greatly appreciate it!
