Oliver, I do appreciate you took the time to respond to my question. However, when I asked how to move my ezjail-based jails, I meant exactly that. I did not ask which is the best jail management system (for my use case I'm completely fine with ezjail), or about the good and bad things about ZFS (I have hardware RAID controller which can't do JBOD on this server), or advantages of rsync over scp (doesn't make much difference for one-time transfer of single .tar.gz file over LAN). Now, to give answer to my own question: everything works fine, after - of course - reinstalling all the packages with `pkg-static upgrade -f'.
