Coming from Gentoo, I'm still used to partitions, and Logical Volume Management. Having just installed and updated FreeBSD-11-RELEASE, using an entire 500GB disk, like so:
% sudo zpool list Password: NAME SIZE ALLOC FREE EXPANDSZ FRAG CAP DEDUP HEALTH ALTROOT zroot 460G 10.7G 449G - 1% 2% 1.00x ONLINE -
I'm trying to get my head around the jails concept. While I understand that a jail is akin to the
chroot command, I'm missing the meaning in the following command:
zfs create -o mountpoint=/usr/local/jails zroot/jails zfs create zroot/jails/fulljail1
while reading through FreeBSD Jails the hard way. Can I create a zfs "partition" in an already active pool for an entire disk, or do I need to create the pool sizes manually in the BSD Installer partitioning screen??
