Briefly describe the system and how isconfigured.
sda RAID6 hardware (sda1 crypt-tmp, sda2 crypt-var, sda3 crypt-home, 
sda4 win-home)
sdb SSD (sdb1 win-boot, sdb2 win)
sdc SSD (sdc1 root)

During the configuration of disks sdc1 selected as ext4, sda1- 2-3, 
selected them as dm_crypt and mappers created as ext4.

HOOKS="base udev autodetect pata sata scsi usb usbinput keymap encrypt 
filesystems"

/etc/fstab
installing the system automatically

/etc/crypttab
tmp         /dev/sda1         ASK
var            /dev/sda2         ASK
home         /dev/sda3         ASK

At boot, when asked to write the password, Iwrite my own and all I get is:
No key available with this passphrase.

What could I have forget?
