Re: [ezjail] Vimage Support


I have a question, what do you mean with "OTOH I heard it still crashes the system
occasionally."? for me work more than 1.5 years without any issues. Probably someone try to
stop jail before remove jailded interface in this case is absolutely normal to receive kernel panic for example. As i try to explain before at the moment after freebsd 9.x, rc.d/jail have native support for vimage and no additional patch are required

Just curious when ezjail is going add support for vimage?

So far I did not hear about success stories of people using vimage in
production systems. OTOH I heard it still crashes the system
occasionally. Usually this is a good indicator it is not yet ready for
prime time.

In ezjail I usually try making the use cases easy that best fit what
most user expect from the respective feature. With vimages I find it
hard to identify best practices of how to make configuration of vimages
for a bunch of jails easy.

Last but not least: the development of the new jail frame work has not yet settled and I would expect the rc.d/-scripts to finally show a path
how all the virtualization frameworks are supposed to work together.

IOW: ezjail is a neat wrapper around the rc.d/jail script and I do not want to reinvent the wheel and implement stuff that is supposed to live
there, anyway.

But until then I have to somehow cope with the new jail.conf approach
and discussed with Jamie how to build a libjail that provides the
backend for jail(8) and a yet to be layouted jail-admin tool that allows
automated management of jails in jail.conf's scope.
