    Default suse 11 andd crypto-files

    Ciao,

    during the installation of Suse 11, i chose to create a crypted file. All went smooth, and now I have the fillowing entries:

    Code:
    # cat /etc/crypttab 
    cr_data.txt     /data.txt            none       none
    #cat /etc/fstab 
    /dev/mapper/cr_data.txt /mnt/data            reiserfs   acl,user_xattr,noauto 0 0
    Now I would like to create a second crypt-file.
    I used
    Code:
    #  dd if=/dev/zero of=/cdata.txt count=10GB
    to fill the file, and I wanted to format it and add it to the system....

    I tried with:
    Code:
    # cryptsetup create cdata /cdata.txt
    or
    Code:
    # cryptsetup luksFormat /cdata.txt
    but nothing works.... do you know where the trick is?


    Thanks,
    dustin

    Hi,

    See the next url, where you have all the steps:

    Novell Documentation

    Once there, look in the menu at your left the section Security -> Encrypting partitions and files-> Setting Up an Encrypted File System with YaST -> 42.1.2 Creating an Encrypted Partition on a Running System.

    Hope this helps.
