Oct 4 09:01:24 slocum kernel: pid 1409 (check_bacula), uid 181: exited on signal 11

I’ve been getting these messages in /var/log/messages on slocum for as long as I can remember. Today I found out why those errors are occurring. They are logged on the FreeBSD jail host for a Nagios instance I run. Nagios runs in a jail on that host. I’ve just been ignoring the messages, but today …

How allow.mount.zfs affects mountpoints for ZFS

I noticed this the other day, and thought it was interesting. When the jailed property is set on a ZFS fileset, it affects the mountpoint within the jail. If your jail uses allow.mount.zfs (known as allow_mount_zfs when using iocage), the mountpoints become relative to the jail. For example, in my poudriere jail, this is what …

Migrating all your iocage jails to a new host

In this post, I’m not exporting an iocage jail to another host. I am moving the entire iocage instance to another host. This is accomplished by doing a zfs export on the zpool, moving the drives to a new system, and doing a zfs import. The drive migration is covered in a previous post. In …

Migrating drives and the zpool from one host to another.

Today is the day. Today I move a zpool from an R710 into an R720. The goal: all services on that zpool start running on the new host. Fortunately, that zpool is dedicated to jails, more or less. I have done some planning about this, including moving a poudriere on the R710 into a jail. …

Moving poudriere from the host into a jail

This post is all about moving poudriere from the host into a jail, but you could probably use it for creating a new jail and running poudriere in it. This also assumes use of iocage, but use whatever jail tools you want. If you encounter problems with this, please post it in the comments and …
