I'm trying to mount a disk with password from the terminal, i try:

diskutil mount Harddrive

I Get:

Unable to find disk for Harddrive

This is because the disk isn't in Volumes until i entered the password,

How to enter the password from terminal?

I think the command you want is unlockVolume:

diskutil unlockVolume lvUUID [-stdinpassphrase] | [-passphrase passphrase] | [-recoverykeychain file]
