Subject Moving Forrest Zone to a FreeBSD Jail
Date Mon, 19 Jul 2010 10:46:06 GMT
Hi All,

Infra are working towards removing Helios our Zones machine. The Zones are
to be replaced with FreeBSD (8.1-RC2 currently) Jails.

All projects zones are to be moved over the next few weeks. I have been
tasked mainly with this job, with help from others as

I have created new Jails but have yet to migrate an existing zone to a jail,
so I would like to start on familiar ground and
get the Forrest Zone moved - this week if possible. Anyone who has an acct
on our current zone setup will if they still require
it, get an acct on the new Jail.

Does anyone foresee any issues in doing this? Is the timing ok?

The only thing I can see is that FreeBSD (and now Debian/Ubuntu) uses the
Diablo Java rather than the sun jdk so if anyone knows
of any issues with that please let me know.

I envisage a short crossover period where we will have both available
(forrest.zones.a.o and forrest2.zones.a.o) until we are happy all
is well at our new digs.

If no objections I'll start soon (next couple of days)
