NAME
       ezjail -	A simple jail setup framework

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ezjail.sh

DESCRIPTION
       The ezjail framework provides a simple way to create many virtual Free-
       BSD servers by using FreeBSD's jail system. It requires little adminis-
       tration effort and aims for minimum system resource usage.

       If  you are not familiar	with the FreeBSD jail concept, please refer to
       jail(8) before continuing.

OVERVIEW
       One base	jail is	filled with most userland binaries and	libraries  and
       then  mounted  read  only  into	a  number  of  stripped	down jails via
       mount_nullfs(8) - thus saving lots of inodes and	memory resources.

INVOCATION
       The ezjail script /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ezjail.sh takes parameters	start,
       startcrypto,  restart  and stop.	It may be passed an additional list of
       jails. If no jail name is specified (usually when the script is	called
       by  rc.local  at	 boot and shutdown time), all jails in ezjail's	scope,
       except  crypto  image  jails  (or  jails	 marked	 as   blocking),   are
       started/stopped.	To start all crytpo image jails	(or those depending on
       them), use the startcrypto parameter.

       The script examines its config, attaches	and mounts  images,  and  sets
       variables  for each jail	in the jail_list before	passing	its command on
       to the /etc/rc.d/jail script.

NOTES
       ezjail.sh enforces the execution	of /etc/rc.d/jail, by prepending "one"
       to  the start, restart, and stop	commands so it is NOT NECESSARY	to set
       jail_enable in the /etc/rc.conf config file.
