Hello list.

I'm running this;

FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE #0: Thu Jan  1 14:37:25 UTC 2009 
     root at  i386

and I'm trying to encrypt my usb memory with geli.

But it does not work according to the handbook or this homepage

This works

geli init -s 4096 -l 256 /dev/da0
Enter new passphrase:
Reenter new passphrase:

This does not work

geli attach /dev/da0

geli: Cannot read metadata from /dev/da0: Invalid argument.
