I'm trying to make an encrypted partition and getting errors.  Here are my


# <type> <mountpoint> <size>   <fs type> <mount options> <misc options>

disk_config disk1 disklabel:gpt bootable:1 fstabkey:uuid

primary -             1M       -         -

primary /             8192     ext4      rw,errors=remount-ro createopts="-L

primary swap          1024     swap      sw              createopts="-L

primary /home         5120     ext4      rw,errors=remount-ro createopts="-m
1 -L home"

primary /var/log      2048     ext4      rw,errors=remount-ro createopts="-L

primary /tmp          4096     ext4      rw,errors=remount-ro createopts="-L

primary -             2048-    -         -


disk_config cryptsetup

luks:"test" /var/data disk1.7  ext3      rw,errors=remount-ro createopts="-L




and here is some output from fai.log:
