My sincerest apologies if this post should be in another forum.

I've been using the diskutil command line program to to mount some encrypted CoreStorage volumes. Nearly everything is working fine; this does exactly what you'd expect:

Code:
diskutil mount /dev/disk5
However, I can't seem to use the -mountPoint option. I get an error when I try this:

Code:
diskutil mount -mountPoint /Users/personal/Downloads /dev/disk5
>> disk5 is a CoreStorage Logical Volume which failed to mount
Any ideas what I am doing wrong? I am running macOS Sierra.
