Remove LUKS Password on CentOS 5 servers


The reason I want to delete the LUKS password is simply that I do not want to have to put it in for each server just to get the system to boot. I am planning to cluster the servers as well and like I said before I don't want to put the password in each time since they won't be running all the time.

Then simply don't use encryption.

If you installed the complete system on LUKS-encrypted partitions then the short answer is no.
