I’m excited to announce the 0.6.0 release of my FreeBSD jail administration Drupal module. This release includes two new features. I’ve created an experimental rc.d to autoboot your jails when your computer boots up. I’ve also added a Drush module so that you can use the command-line to interact with the jail administration project. You can start jails, stop jails, manage jail snapshots, create boot environments (BEs), activate/deactivate BEs, delete BEs, and view the status of jails. As always, you can follow the project on . I’m waiting for RedPorts approval (to test out my Ports tree changes) to submit a PR to FreeBSD to update the Ports tree. In the meantime, you can download it here.

What’s been changed since version 0.5.2:

  • Status page shows DHCP-assigned IP address
  • Add autoboot support
  • Properly set jail hostname
  • Experimental per-jail boot environment support
  • New Drush module for command-line interaction and automation
