NAME

       cdist-type__jail - Manage FreeBSD jails

DESCRIPTION

       This type is used on FreeBSD to manage jails.

REQUIRED PARAMETERS

       state
           Either "present" or "absent", defaults to "present".

       jailbase
           The location of the .tgz archive containing the base fs for your jails.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

       name
           The name of the jail. Default is to use the object_id as the jail name.

       ip
           The ifconfig style IP/netmask combination to use for the jail guest. If the state
           parameter is "present," this parameter is required.

       hostname
           The FQDN to use for the jail guest. Defaults to the name parameter.

       interface
           The name of the physical interface on the jail server to bind the jail to. Defaults to
           the first interface found in the output of ifconfig -l.

       devfs-ruleset
           The name of the devfs ruleset to associate with the jail. Defaults to "jailrules."
           This ruleset must be copied to the server via another type. To use this option,
           devfs-enable must be "true."

       jaildir
           The location on the remote server to use for hosting jail filesystems. Defaults to
           /usr/jail.

BOOLEAN PARAMETERS

       stopped
           Do not start the jail

       devfs-disable
           Whether to disallow devfs mounting within the jail

       onboot
           Whether to add the jail to rc.conf’s jail_list variable.

CAVEATS

       This type does not currently support modification of jail options. If, for example a jail
       needs to have its IP address or netmask changed, the jail must be removed then re-added
       with the correct IP address/netmask or the appropriate line (jail_<name>_ip="...")
       modified within rc.conf through some alternate means.

MESSAGES

       start
           The jail was started

       stop
           The jail was stopped create: The jail was created

       delete
           The jail was deleted

       onboot
           The jail was configured to start on boot

EXAMPLES

           # Create a jail called www
           __jail www --state present --ip "192.168.1.2" --jailbase /my/jail/base.tgz

           # Remove the jail called www
           __jail www --state absent --jailbase /my/jail/base.tgz

           # The jail www should not be started
           __jail www --state present --stopped \
              --ip "192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0" \
              --jailbase /my/jail/base.tgz

           # Use the name variable explicitly
           __jail thisjail --state present --name www \
              --ip "192.168.1.2" \
              --jailbase /my/jail/base.tgz

           # Go nuts
           __jail lotsofoptions --state present --name testjail \
              --ip "192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0" \
              --hostname "testjail.example.com" --interface "em0" \
              --onboot --jailbase /my/jail/base.tgz --jaildir /jails
