DESCRIPTION

The file ezjail.conf contains settings that control the operation of the ezjail rc(8) script. It is also read by the ezjail-admin utility to figure out where it should perform its actions. Its path is set at installation time to /usr/local/etc/ezjail.conf, with an example file installed at /usr/local/etc/ezjail.conf.sample.

This file is really a shell script that is sourced by the ezjail-admin command at run-time. "(str)" denotes a string; it should be enclosed in quotes if it contains space. "(bool)" notes a boolean, whose possible values are "YES" and "NO".

PATH OPTIONS

ezjail_jaildir (str)
  Location of jail root directories.
Default: /usr/jails.
ezjail_jailtemplate (str)
  Location of template jail used to create a new jail
Default: ${ezjail_jaildir}/newjail.

  Location of base jail, the one that is mounted to all jails
Default: ${ezjail_jaildir}/basejail.
ezjail_sourcetree (str)
  Location of your copy of FreeBSD’s source tree (refer to the ezjail-admin(8) utility for more information).
Default: /usr/src.
ezjail_flavours_dir (str)
  Location of the flavours, where each directory is a different flavour.
Default: ${ezjail_jaildir}/flavours.
ezjail_ftphost (str)

ezjail_archivedir (str)
  This is the default archive location for the ezjail-admin archive command.
Default: ${ezjail_jaildir}/ezjail_archives.

Default: /usr/bin/login -f root.
ezjail_exec_start (str)
  The command to execute in a jail when starting it.
Default: /bin/sh /etc/rc.

JAIL CREATION OPTIONS

Default options for newly created jails. Used by the ezjail-admin(1) utility. Be careful about disabling ezjail_mount_enable.
ezjail_mount_enable (bool)
  Controls whether /etc/fstab. hostname should be executed at jail startup time.
Default: YES.
ezjail_devfs_enable (bool)
  Controls whether newly created jails are given a working /dev directory. (Refer to devfs(5) and jail(8) for more information).
Default: YES.
ezjail_devfs_ruleset (str)
  Specifies which devfs ruleset should apply for newly created jails. (Refer to devfs(5) and jail(8) for more information).
Default: devfsrules_jail.
ezjail_procfs_enable (bool)
  Controls whether newly created jails are given a working /proc directory. (Refer to procfs(5) and jail((8)) for more information).
Default: YES.
ezjail_fdescfs_enable (bool)
  Controls whether newly created jails are given a working /dev/fd/ directory. (Refer to fdescfs((5)) and jail((8)) for more information).
Default: YES.

  Set to YES, if ezjail should manage basejail and newjail in a separate ZFS-datasets.
Default: NO.
ezjail_use_zfs_for_jails (bool)
  Set to YES, if ezjail should manage all new jails in their own ZFS-datasets. To override that on the command line, use ezjail-admin create -c simple for image based jails or ezjail-admin create -c ’’ for non-image jails.
Default: NO.
ezjail_jailzfs (str)
  The name of the parent ZFS-dataset which ezjail will use to create jails on. It will be mounted in ezjail_jaildir. Setting this will automatically enable ezjail managing jails in separate ZFS-datasets.
