Re: [ezjail] ezjail best practices


Guess I shouldn't have used the term "ports" when I meant "packages" to avoid confusion.

I understand how to get the ports collection installed and updated with the -P switch, but what I'm interested in is a way to keep the installed packages current on each of the jails without having to go into each jail individually and type:

# portupgrade -a

every time a port needs updating.

Is this possible when all of the jails run the same set of packages?

    Would it make sense to install packages (ports) into basejail, and if

Try this on the base system:
# ezjail-admin update -P
