Description Charles R. Anderson 2008-01-18 11:17:58 EST
Description of problem:
When creating LVs, there should be a checkbox to enable Encryption, but it is
missing.  The encryption checkbox is there for PVs and also when creating
regular partitions/filesystems, but not for LVs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Custom partitioning
2. Create PVs or reuse existing ones
3. Click LVM, add LVs
Comment 1 David Lehman 2008-01-18 11:37:44 EST
This is intentional. We currently support encryption of PVs, but not LVs.
Comment 2 David Lehman 2008-01-18 14:07:52 EST
Having said that, we do plan on adding the support. It's just that I knew it
wouldn't be there to begin with.
Comment 3 Tim Niemueller 2008-02-08 04:49:39 EST
Did you use the patch from bug #124789? That supports encrypted LVs (using it
here). Or is that just an anaconda thing that this cannot be created, but used
Comment 4 David Lehman 2008-04-04 11:59:09 EDT
As of anaconda- you should be able to actually create encrypted
logical volumes. Corresponding support should be present in mkinitrd.
