Jail renaming:

jrename command

			% cbsd jrename


Renames a jail and modifies all relevant according to the new name. The command can only be executed on stopped jails.

jrename has the two following mandatory parameters:

  • old — old name of the jail
  • new — new name of the jail

Optional parameters:

  • host_hostname — FQDN, new full hostname of jail
  • ip4_addr — new IP address of the jail (if multiple IPs, separated by a comma with no spaces)

Example (renaming jail jail1 into jail50 with a FQDN and ip addresses change):

			% cbsd jrename old=jail1 new=jail50 ip4_addr=
