FreeBSD virtual environment management and repository

2020-10 upd: we reached the first fundraising goal and rented a server in Hetzner for development! Thank you for donating !

Attention! Current pages describe CBSD version 13.0.x. If you are using an older version, please update first.

Please note: these commands support the mask (wildcard) as a jname, for example: jname='*', jname='ja*l*'

Attention! I apologize for the automatic translation of this text. You can improve it by sending me a more correct version of the text or fix html pages via GITHUB repository.

Virtual Machine Import

command: bimport

			% cbsd bimport

Import from image (* .img) virtual machine. The argument jname the full path to the file or the name of the image (without extension .img), which must be located in the appropriate directory ($workdir/import). img-file after the import is still in place. Additionally, you can import a virtual machine from an image in the alternate name (for example, you want to deploy the image of the debian1 from debian1.img, however, your system already has a VM with the same name). In this case, use the argument newjname


Import virtual machine from the file /tmp/debian1.img:

			% cbsd bimport jname=/tmp/debian1.img

Import debian2.img placed in $workdir/import under new name debian5:

			% cbsd bimport jname=debian2 newjname=debian5
