Role Name

This role is a set of tools for maintaining FreeBSD jails using ZFS. The nature of this role is to include the tasks/jail/main.yml with the proper variables set up. It will check if the underlying OS version in the jail is outdated, and update if necessary, while calling configured hooks during the process.

I use this on my single server box to maintain separation between various services. Of course, the nature of Ansible does make this rule and anything that uses it, scalable.


A fairly recent FreeBSD box.

Role Variables

Variables this role uses are defined in the defaults/main.yml file, using sensible defaults. Override then at your convenience.


This role depends on an already existing 'jail template', that is provided by the role karolyi.freebsd-zfs-jailtemplate.

Example Playbook

Including an example of how to use your role (for instance, with variables passed in as parameters) is always nice for users too:

- hosts:
    - localhost
     - karolyi.ansible-freebsd-jailhost-tools
