In this activity you will resolve an issue that prevents a LUKS container from being opened successfully.

You are working as a System Administrator and tasked with opening and mounting a corrupted LUKS container. Currently the device is not recognized as a LUKS container as shown by the isLuks command:

  # cryptsetup -v isLuks /dev/loop0
  Command failed with code -1 (wrong or missing parameters).

You will need to login to the remote system running CentOS Linux 7.7 and resolve the issue.
