Jail import

jimport command

			% cbsd jimport

Import jail from (*.img) file.

In jname argument you can set full path to file or just filename (without .img extension) if file placed in $workdir/import directory. img-file after import is not modified. In addition, you can import an image of a jail in an alternate name (for example, you want to deploy the image of the jail1 from jail1.img, however, your system already has a jail of the same name). In this case, an argument newjname can be used.


import jail from /tmp/mysqljail.img file:

			% cbsd jimport jname=/tmp/mysqljail.img


import the image jail2.img placed in $workdir/import with a new name jail5:

			% cbsd jimport jname=jail2 newjname=jail5
