Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 429299
missing "Encrypt LV" checkbox when creating LVs
Last modified: 2008-04-04 11:59:09 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Custom partitioning
2. Create PVs or reuse existing ones
3. Click LVM, add LVs
This is intentional. We currently support encryption of PVs, but not LVs.
Having said that, we do plan on adding the support. It's just that I knew it
wouldn't be there to begin with.
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
As of anaconda-126.96.36.199-1 you should be able to actually create encrypted
logical volumes. Corresponding support should be present in mkinitrd.
