Default HOWTO: Unlock A LUKS Encrypted Root Partition Via SSH On Ubuntu

I am trying to apply the Howto indicated in the title to a fully encrypted (by alternative
install) Kubuntu 8.04. I can login over ssh after the boot but the
"unlock" command is just hanging there with the message:

Setting up cryptographic volume sda2_crypt (based on /dev/disk/by-uuid/...
It never prompts for the pass phrase or does anything.

I was wondering if anybody has some idea how to proceed. I tried to do
manually what unlock does with the same result.
