FreeBSD Jail management with Puppet, using iocell

Puppet Forge

Manage FreeBSD jails with Puppet, leveraging iocell for jail management.

Compatibility Warning

This module conflicts with zleslie/jail


This module expects to be the only jail manager on a given system. Each system where jails will be managed needs to include the jail::setup class as well.

include jail::setup

This simply installs 'iocell' and removes '/etc/jail.conf'.

This allows the type to use the correct jail without having to specify the pool on each jail.

A simple jail

jail { 'myjail1':
  ensure    => present,
  state     => 'up',
  ip4_addr  => 'em0|',
  ip6_addr  => 'em0|fc00::10/64',
  hostname  => '',
  boot      => 'on',
  pcpu      => '20'
  memoryuse => '4G',
  quota     => '15G',
  release   => '11.1-RELEASE'
  rlimits   => 'on',
  user_data => template('mysite/'),

Note the ip4_addr and the ip6_addr properties take an interface name and an IP address separated by a pipe character. This value is passed directly to iocell(7). You may wish to read the man page.
