Re: [ezjail] monitoring a jail startup and nfs

I've created a flavor and added in a package, in this case postfix that requires two interactive questions to be answered. Additionally ssh goes through it's startup and i'd like to monitor that as well. I've tried doing jail and pointing it to the ezjail jail but that doesn't work. I can use jexec, but that needs a jid, but if i start the jail, i miss the startup msgs on my console. What am i missing?

I've got it running on the host system exporting items to other computers, but i'd like to set up a separate jail subnet, and have one jail run nfs, that the others can connect to. I'd like jail and host nfs not to interfere with each other. Is this doable?

Regarding the monitor, you can "tail -f" the jails'
{JAILPATH}/var/log/console.log from the base system.

Alternatively, in future stable versions of ezjail, there will be:

Version history:

CURRENT - not yet packaged
    * Introduced the ezjail-admin console sub command. This will jexec
into a jail identified by its jail name. It can also bring up
non-running jails if ran with the -f switch.

Regarding the openssl, what does pkg_info say about the installed package?
It seems to be a problem unrelated to jails (and ezjail).

I don't think you can run a NFS server inside a jail, but I hope
someone tells me that I'm wrong and send the recipe to make it work
along. :)
