Known Issues in Navigator Encrypt

Learn about the known issues in Navigator Encrypt, the impact or changes to the functionality, and the workaround.

GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) is not enabled for the repositories in the packages. You cannot use the packages without disabling GPG checking.
To use the packages, disable GPG checking when you are creating a local repository:
  • On RedHat: Add gpgcheck=0 to the repo file
  • On Ubuntu: Add [trusted=yes] to the entry added to '/etc/apt/sources.list’. For example, deb [trusted=yes] file:///etc/navencrypt-repo.
If you are using Ubuntu 20.04, hosts must be running Linux kernel 5.8 and higher.

A host reboot might be required before NavEncrypt is started.

If while installing NavEncrypt, the cryptsetup package is also installed, a host reboot might be required before NavEncrypt is started.

Failed to start navencrypt-mount.service

If the comand "systemctl status navencrypt-mount" fails with the error: "Failed to start navencrypt-mount.service: Unit navencrypt-mount.service failed to load: No such file or directory", the kernel's kdbus component might be misconfigured.

Workaround:To completely disable kdbus: The boot grub file must be modified to add "--set kdbus=0" to the kernel boot options.

Do this using the proper kernel tool. This seems to happen on SLES12SP5. Care must be taken when doing this as the grub configuration is integral to the host booting.
