zfs-jail — attach
or detach ZFS filesystem from FreeBSD jail
- Attach the specified filesystem to the jail
identified by JID jailid or name
jailname. From now on this file system tree can be
managed from within a jail if the jailed property has
been set. To use this functionality, the jail needs the
parameters set to
1 and the
parameter set to a value lower than
You cannot attach a jailed dataset's children to another jail. You can also not attach the root file system of the jail or any dataset which needs to be mounted before the zfs rc script is run inside the jail, as it would be attached unmounted until it is mounted from the rc script inside the jail.
To allow management of the dataset from within a jail, the jailed property has to be set and the jail needs access to the /dev/zfs device. The quota property cannot be changed from within a jail.
After a dataset is attached to a jail and the jailed property is set, a jailed file system cannot be mounted outside the jail, since the jail administrator might have set the mount point to an unacceptable value.
See jail(8) for more information on managing jails. Jails are a FreeBSD feature and are not relevant on other platforms.
- Detaches the specified filesystem from the jail identified by JID jailid or name jailname.
