Hello to all. I've got a problem setting up the gmirror + geli combination for / under the FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE. I have successfully created the mirror/gm0 device from "fixit" bsd livecd, then I've initialized the geli provider using the command geli init -b -l 256 -s 4096 -K /usb/gm0.key /dev/mirror/gm0
geli attach -k /usb/gm0.key /dev/mirror/gm0 went successfully as well as detach/re-attach so passphrase and the key is ok. after that I've detached the gm0 and rebooted from the bootable usb-stick, which contained the /boot/ /etc/ and key-file + loader.conf with the following: geli_gm0_keyfile0_load="YES" geli_gm0_keyfile0_type="gm0:geli_keyfile0" geli_gm0_keyfile0_name="/boot/keys/gm0.key" kern.geom.eli.visible_passphrase=1 During the boot process I got a message that mirror/gm0 is created and after that I was asked for my pass-phrase. I've typed the pass-phrase (for the experiment clearance it was "aaa" - without any "special" characters or something) and got an error: GEOM_ELI: wrong key for mirror/gm0 The keyboard is ok - I see all the characters typed (due to visible_passphrase param in my loader.conf) I have disabled the kbdmux device in kernel which was blamed as a geli troublemaker as well. GEOM mirror and eli options as well as cryptodevice are compiled into the kernel. Booting from "fixit" cd again shows that cryptoprovider creates and mounts ok with the mentioned key and passphrase. My guess was to change the "gm0" to mirror/gm0 at geli_ strings of loader.conf file - I've tried that but with no luck (maybe I did it incorrectly) There are really a very few articles over internet describing geli+gmirror combination - so I'll very much appreciate any suggestions! -- wbr, Taras Danko _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
