Why didn't it let me in? Let me try the console:
# ezjail-admin console mysql51.example.org

Welcome to FreeBSD!
Before seeking technical support, please use the following resources:
o Security advisories and updated errata information for all releases are
at http://www.FreeBSD.org/releases/ - always consult the ERRATA section
for your release first as it's updated frequently.
o The Handbook and FAQ documents are at http://www.FreeBSD.org/ and,
along with the mailing lists, can be searched by going to
http://www.FreeBSD.org/search/. If the doc distribution has
been installed, they're also available formatted in /usr/share/doc.
If you still have a question or problem, please take the output of
`uname -a', along with any relevant error messages, and email it
as a question to the questions@FreeBSD.org mailing list. If you are
unfamiliar with FreeBSD's directory layout, please refer to the hier(7)
manual page. If you are not familiar with manual pages, type `man man'.
You may also use sysinstall(8) to re-enter the installation and
configuration utility. Edit /etc/motd to change this login announcement.
This dumped me right into the jail. So I got started:
bash: Command not found.
No bash? There should be bash. That's one of the first things my jails install.
Is my account there?
mysql51# grep dan /etc/passwd
No, no account. OK, so the jail isn't being properly set up. What's in messages:
mysql51 root: /etc/rc: WARNING: Ignoring old-style startup script /etc/rc.d/ezjail-config.sh
mysql51 sshd: error: PAM: authentication error for illegal user dan from 10.55.0.1
mysql51 last message repeated 2 times
Old style? What's up with that?
# ls -l /etc/rc.d/ezjail-config.sh
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 15 Jan 22 16:14 /etc/rc.d/ezjail-config.sh -> /ezjail.flavour
/ezjail.flavour is the startup script executed once when the jail is first run. It can do
most setup that you might require. Failure to start is the cause of these problems. But why?
Google to the rescue: http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg01080.html.
In short, the file name needs to change from ezjail-config.sh to ezjail-config. More
precisely, the symlink needs to be renamed.
