Is there a way to skip mounting an encrypted filesystem (RH 6.1)?
 
Hello,

When booting in text mode, RH6.1 asks for the password for an encrypted
filesystem.


We don't want to mount it, but skip mounting it!

Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a way to say so. The password
entry query reappears infinitely often!


This is unlike in Fedora, IIRC, 3 passes and you are skipping....

Best regards

Hi David,

Just a shot in the dark here. How about commenting out the entry in
both the /etc/fstab and the /etc/crypttab?

Hello David,

Check /etc/fstab for the filesystem's mount-point and add the option "noauto" to the fourth field (options)

Succes

Met vriendelijke groet / kind regards,

Thanks guys,

I think it would be great if the boot process said something like "enter password to decrypt or CTRL-D to skip"...
Guess I will open a RFE in bugzilla.
