Prior to rolling over to systemd I used the following line in my crypttab:
cryptodev /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1:vfat:/unlockfile luks
With systemd that seems to be broken, so I tried mounting the usb stick(sdc1) in fstab as /mnt/usb then mod the cryptab to:
cryptodev /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb/unlockfile luks
However this does not work because the firstname.lastname@example.org script runs prior to mounts. I attempted to add "Requires=mnt-usb.mount" and "After=mnt-usb.mount" in /email@example.com but I believe this is a generated file. My first thought is to move the .service to the /etc/systemd/service folder and perform edits there, then remove the crypttab all together. Thoughts, or an easier solution?
I still have had no luck in getting my crypto filesystems to mount properly on boot. When the key file is on the root partition I have no problems, but when it is on a removable device it fails because systemd has not mounted the flash drive containing the key yet. I tried getting rid of the entries in crypttab and creating my own service, but it fails the same. Anyone else have this issue?
Have you tried "noauto"? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd#Automount

This sounds like the correct solution, though no need to remove crypttab, the copy in /etc will take precedence over the generated one. We should probably improve the crypttab generator to add this automatically. In the meantime: I'm not sure why this does not work for you without more info. After "systemctl daemon-reload" with the modified file in place, can you paste "systemctl show firstname.lastname@example.org" ?
