I want to throw all services from the host system and put them in jails.

Unfortunatly this doesn't work for file sharing (e.g. nfsd) because the jails don't have there own network stack by default. I know read something about vimage which would solve this issue.

See more in this thread:

The use of vimage with raw jails should use moreorless but the use with vimage and ezjail makes it hard.

Does anyone have experience about this topic and wants to share it?
