I meant to point if=jailroot/dev/random. Testing /dev/random for the
host OS isn't going to be too meaningful.

Thanks Chris,

I figured out what you meant.  ;)

I think with all my playing I managed to put a symlink in the dev directory that I can't get out.

I will try to do a reinstall of the machine and try all the suggestions on a clean environment.


Ok.  I now know what is happening.

The random and urandom devices are in the jail's /dev directory when the jail is created and the test you gave me to try did work once tweaked a bit. But when I run the installation script for hsphere the two devices disappear out of the /dev directory.

The devices are then inaccessible for all processes until the jail is restarted.

I have looked in the usually log files and nothing is recorded there.

My configuration is as follows....

# Jail info in host's rc.conf

add include $devfsrules_hide_all
add include $devfsrules_unhide_basic
