I have an encrypted /home partition using ELI. Recently I changed password for the encrypted partition and now the following problem consistently occurs:

At boot I am queried for a password for the ELI partition, I enter et correctly - six times - but it fails every time. After the sixth failure the rc script aborts, I am queried for the root password and enter.

I am then able to run

# geli attach /dev/ad0s2d

manually and attach the encrypted device. Then I can run rc manually and the machine completes the startup without further problems.

What has happened? How do I solve this?

Thanks, Erik
