i started playing with jails today, and after following and re-following the man page and the freebsddiary article a few times, i finally got it to work! i have one jail that starts on startup, and actually the hump i was getting over was getting the jail to actually kick off the sshd daemon. all that is working, and i can reboot my host, and then log into the jail that auto-starts via ssh.
a couple of general questions that i cannot find the answers to: 1) if i want more than one jail, what is the proper syntax in the host's /etc/rc.conf file for the jail_list="jailed" statement? multiple jail_list lines, or a single line that specifies more than one jail? 2) what happens to a jail when i 'shutdown -p now' on the host? what caveats do i need to watch for when rebooting or shutting down the host? 3) i would like to build some ports in my jailed process, but for my environment, this requires mounting the export from my main box on my network. so far, i am not able to mount a NFS share to /usr/ports (mount_nfs: /usr/ports: Operation not permitted). so far so good, and im hoping i can find some interesting uses for jails on my network! thanks, jonathan _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
