I have a geli backed ufs file system:
# ad14.eli esata
/dev/ufs/E1TB /edisks/esata0 ufs rw,noauto 2 2
I use a passphrase to attach it:
# geli attach ad14
Enter passphrase: **
The provider shows up as ad14.eli as expected. The file system
on it has a label of E1TB (as seen above).
# mount /dev/ufs/E1TB
usually works fine.
The problem is that if I restart the system normally, the
file system on the provider ad14.eli, when reattached, is
marked as dirty and I get the usual "operation not permitted"
error. I have to run:
# fsck -t ufs /dev/ad14.eli
before I can mount it again. This is repeatable and occurs
for more than just the one geli provider I use in this example.
Am I missing something with respect to properly attaching a
geli device? Do I need the '-d' option to detach at last
Thanks for any help.
