cdist-type__jail_freebsd9 - Man Page

Manage FreeBSD jails

Description

This type is used on FreeBSD <= 9.x to manage jails.

Required Parameters

state

Either "present" or "absent", defaults to "present".

jailbase

The location of the .tgz archive containing the base fs for your jails.

Optional Parameters

name

The name of the jail. Default is to use the object_id as the jail name.

ip

The ifconfig style IP/netmask combination to use for the jail guest. If the state parameter is "present," this parameter is required.

hostname

The FQDN to use for the jail guest. Defaults to the name parameter.

interface

The name of the physical interface on the jail server to bind the jail to. Defaults to the first interface found in the output of ifconfig -l.

devfs-ruleset

The name of the devfs ruleset to associate with the jail. Defaults to "jailrules." This ruleset must be copied to the server via another type. To use this option, devfs-enable must be "true."

jaildir

The location on the remote server to use for hosting jail filesystems. Defaults to /usr/jail.

Boolean Parameters

stopped

Do not start the jail

devfs-disable

Whether to disallow devfs mounting within the jail

onboot

Whether to add the jail to rc.conf's jail_list variable.

Caveats

This type does not currently support modification of jail options. If, for example a jail needs to have its IP address or netmask changed, the jail must be removed then re-added with the correct IP address/netmask or the appropriate line (jail_<name>_ip="...") modified within rc.conf through some alternate means.

Messages

start

The jail was started

stop

The jail was stopped

create:

The jail was created

delete

The jail was deleted

onboot

The jail was configured to start on boot

Examples

# Create a jail called www
__jail_freebsd9 www --state present --ip "192.168.1.2" --jailbase /my/jail/base.tgz

# Remove the jail called www
__jail_freebsd9 www --state absent --jailbase /my/jail/base.tgz

# The jail www should not be started
__jail_freebsd9 www --state present --stopped \
   --ip "192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0" \
   --jailbase /my/jail/base.tgz

# Use the name variable explicitly
__jail_freebsd9 thisjail --state present --name www \
   --ip "192.168.1.2" \
   --jailbase /my/jail/base.tgz

# Go nuts
__jail_freebsd9 lotsofoptions --state present --name testjail \
   --ip "192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0" \
   --hostname "testjail.example.com" --interface "em0" \
