The FreeBSD handbook refers to ezjail:


If this is no longer the best method then maybe this should be changed.  If a bug report was posted with edits to the recommended method what do most people use?

qjail ? Personally I have had success with iocage , which I understood all the cool kids were using now.


Am I in the minority in using this method?
