  1. I think the posts you have about LUKS is great except for one typo….you can’t use -l with the +100M option those are for extents you need the -L +100M. But I am definitely using your posts to prepare more for the exam…Thanks!!

    1. Thank you for pointing out the typo! Concerning the resize4fs I did not mention it because the 16TB bug was only fixed in RHEL 6.1.
