Hi, Its never been a problem for my systems. Two machines running 19 jails. Done around a dozen system updates and also changing release from 6.0 to 6.2 using the same method was no problem at all. First proceed as the handbook describes for the host-system. After everything completes and your system and jails are up again rebuild you jails with as follows: # make -j4 buildworld # mergemaster -p -D /jails/example # make installworld DESTDIR=/jails/example # mergemaster -D /jails/example After that restart Jail. Done. In my case I work with different make.conf files for jails and host system, thats the reason why I rebuild world for the jails, If not you can just make installworld without rebuilding. If you have multiple jails, you can skip buildworld after first one. Hope this helps.
