I am not able to get the encrypted swap working. Using either the existing swap partition, or by creating another partition....

I am using Centos 7. Has anyone got it working? 


  • yes it worked on my centos 7

    Glad to hear someone got it working.

    I had no problems with lab 10.1, but 10.2 didn't work for me.

    I was able to get lab 10.1 working on Centos 7, Ubuntu 16 & OpenSUSE 13.2.

    But, I didn't get a chance to try lab 10.2 on Ubuntu 16 or OpenSUSE 13.2 because I was stuck trying to get it working on Centos 7. 



  • Hi earlpearl,

    What's the exact error you are getting? What part of the exercise is failing for you?

    Hi Luis

    I am able to complete all the steps of Lab 10.2 on Centos 7, Ubuntu 16 & OpenSUSE 13.2.

    But, when I reboot, a. I am not prompted for a password

                                b. no swaps are available


  • Hi earlpearl,

    Have you configured /etc/crypttab and /etc/fstab as indicated in the lab?



  • Hi Luis

    Yes, I completed all the steps, but no success.

    I will investigate this at a later date. And, if I find a solution, I'll post it.



  • Hi Liam,

    If the lab is failing for all these three distros, it may mean that you are missing something.
