I have a system with two encrypted filesystems:
1. The root partition, encrypted using a passphrase
2. A data partition, encrypted with a keyfile (stored on the root partition).
After a reboot suddenly the correct passphrase is not working anymore, most of the times, sometimes (rarely) it works.
I booted from a Fedora Live CD and ran the command:
Most of the times I will get the error "No key available with this passphrase" but every now and then it will say "Success".
Code: Select all
while ( true ); do echo -n 'passphrase' | cryptsetup open --test-passphrase <device> && echo "Success";
The other partition that has a key file shows the same behavior.
Using the master key I am able to open both partitions without a problem.
Anyone has seen this before and/or knows a solution?
Thanks in advance!
