Re: [ezjail] Non-interactive use of ezjail-admin update -P

I see.   Perhaps it would be more useful if the ".norun" jails didnt run on machine bootup - but could still be started manually using "ezjail.sh start .norun_jailname"  That was how I read the explanation on your webpage - my mistake - but perhaps a suggestion for the future.
