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 started to read more on the matter and quickly got into some articles that are quite a bit over my head. Since I'm dealing with potential data loss if I accidentally overwrite the volume, I was hoping to get some help in particular from you guys.
Any help would be appreciated -please let me know if I should post any specifics. Also - if it helps, 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.
Thanks for the reply - I read through that document and it looks like it assmues the /dev/sda5 is an encrypted volume group, however my issue is a bit different because the volume group itself isn't encrypted, just 2 of the volumes within the group.
Does anyone know of a good document showing how to deal with this situation?
