# cryptsetup status usb
/dev/mapper/usb is inactive.

cr_mmcblk0p3  UUID=c0587206-aaa9-4e93-98be-d7ee30d6b12c
cr_usb  UUID=98b904aa-5b37-476e-a690-5c73cc93a5b7 /etc/usbkey nofail

       Each line is in the form

           name encrypted-device password options

       The third field specifies the encryption password. If the field is not present or the password is set to "none" or "-", the
       password has to be manually entered during system boot. Otherwise, the field is interpreted as an absolute path to a file
       containing the encryption password.

Comment 2 Michal Suchanek 2019-09-01 11:23:23 UTC
This is some bug with daemon-reload handling. The service was regenerated correctly as seen above but the previously loaded one with different key file was executed. Executing daemon-reload multiple times, possibly with some time passing in-between also loads the correct service definition.

My guess is that you just interrupted systemctl here but PID1 is still trying to activate the job you queued with systemctl.

systemctl was simply waiting for systemd-cryptsetup@cr_usb.service to be running. You killed it but this had no effects the queued job itself.

After pressing ^C, what does "systemctl status systemd-cryptsetup@cr_usb.service" show ?
Comment 4 Franck Bui 2019-10-09 15:00:36 UTC
I think the description I gave in comment #3 is what happened in your case and is then expected.

So I'm closing this bug.

In case you don't agree with this behavior please discuss this directly with upstream as this issue is not related to any SUSE specificity.
