I've followed this question https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/5017/ssh-to-decrypt-encrypted-lvm-during-headless-server-boot and successfully remotely decrypted my root drive. However, I have a second drive that I also have encrpted, and unfortunately dropbear is killed by the boot process before second passphrase prompt for the second drive is shown and the main open-ssh server has not yet started so once again the headless system sits waiting for input indefinitely.
Is there any way round this?
The second drive will be used for private cloud data storage so needs to be encrypted to protect the data, and needs to be decrypted before the cloud service starts (which I haven't chosen or installed yet).
Ubuntu 13.10 x64 server running headless, though I'm not totally tied to Ubuntu it is kinda convenient.
