Yeah, the best bet is to either edit the file from SSH inside the jail itself or plan to do something like FTP or SFTP. I'm doing CIFS right now with 9.2.0, but starting with 9.2.1(and in particular Samba4) there is no easy way to do what you(and I) want.thanks much for the advice, I set-up the snapshot.
one thing though, I'm trying to change the server.properties file. I am accessing through CIFS. It won't let me change anything through here and I've changed the permissions to the jail, but that goofs the server up when I do this (this was the problem I was having, not realizing it at first). Would there be another way to access the files, somewhat easy like CIFS, so I can change and swap files as needed w/o messing all the permissions? I saw above about accessing through FTP - but I don't have one installed on the NAS.
Yep. Completely normal and has to do with how the network stack works between FreeNAS and the jail(s).I followed these instructions and got it all set up and working, but now the jail's IP address is showing up on the main FreeNAS screen as an option for accessing the WebGUI, and it does, in fact, work. Not so much a problem as just strange, but any idea why I can access the WebGUI using the jail IP like that?
