Hi freebsd-virtualization list
I am trying to figure out how to start configured jails within FreeBSD
9.1Release at boot time.
I am using new C-style jail configuration syntax in /etc/jail.conf.
all jail starts successfully when i do a jail -c from the commandline.
I am trying to configure jails to start at boot time using the features
in the /etc/rc.conf file.
in /etc/rc.conf at base host i have
jail_list=" jail1 jail2 jail3 "
and no more jail related lines, evereything else is placed into the jail
configuration (C-style) file.
running "service jail start":
Starting jails:/etc/rc.d/jail: ERROR: jail: No hostname has been defined
Looking into the /etc/rc.d/jail script it seems it expects that the
/etc/rc.conf contains old style jail configuration statement like
I have looked at the patch at:
but it also uses the old style (rc.config) jail configuration format,
but with extended number of parameters. The patch is dated before the
9-1 release where the C-style jail configuration syntax was taken into use.
is there a patch for /etc/rc.d/jail script that make it handles the new
style jail configuration file format (the C-style format). or am I doing
this the wrong way.
If you can point me into the right direction it will be very helpfull.
It would be great with something like a /etc/jail.d/<jailname> setup
where each jail configuration file is contained in a separate file, the
format is the same as the /etc/jail.conf, the latter fil just holds
configurations for all jails. Both files with the C-style syntax.
