NAME
       jk_jailuser - a utility to put an existing user in a jail

SYNOPSIS
       jk_jailuser [OPTIONS] <username>	[more usernames]

       jk_jailuser --jail=/path/to/jail	<username>

DESCRIPTION
       The  jk_jailuser	 utility  will	change	the  shell of an existing user
       <username>  to  jk_chrootsh  and	  change   the	 home	directory   to
       <jail>/./<previous-home-directory>,   and  it  will  add	 the  user  to
       <jail>/etc/passwd. On *BSD systems this is <jail>/etc/master.passwd and
       pwd_mkdb	is used	to generate the	other password files.

       The  jk_jailuser	 utility  will	abort if the <jail>/etc/passwd file is
       missing,	or if the shell	is missing in the jail.

       If <previous-home-directory> was	already	inside the jail, a /./ sepera-
       tor is placed on	the correct location in	the path. If the previous home
       directory was not in the	jail, it is changed. In	interactive  mode  you
       are asked if you	want to	move the contents. In non-interactive mode the
       contents	are only moved if the --move option is specified.

OPTIONS
       -j --jail=jail
	      The jail directory to use. This jail should  exist,  and	should
	      have at least <jail>/etc/passwd

       -v --verbose
	      Will give	verbose	output

       -h --help
	      The help screen

       -m --move
	      Move  the	 contents of the home directory	inside the jail. If in
	      interactive mode,	jk_jailuser will ask if	the  directory	should
	      be  moved	if that	is necessary. In non-interactive mode this op-
	      tion is disabled by default.

       -n --noninteractive
	      No user interaction.

       -s --shell=shell
	      The shell	to use inside the jail.	Defaults to /usr/sbin/jk_lsh
