I have FreeBSD 10.1 and trying to setup a jail according to the handbook:

    15.3. Creating and Controlling Jails

|#|  *|setenv D/|/staorage/jails/crochet|/|*
|#|  *|mkdir -p $D|*
|#|  *|cd /usr/src|*
|#|  *|make buildworld|*
|#|  *|make installworld DESTDIR=$D|*
|#|  *|make distribution DESTDIR=$D|*
|#|  *|mount -t devfs devfs $D/dev|*

cat /etc/jail.conf
crochet {
         path = /storage/jails/crochet;
         host.hostname = crochet;
         ip4.addr =;
         interface = re0;
         exec.start = "/bin/sh /etc/rc";
         exec.stop = "/bin/sh /etc/rc.shutdown";

jail /storage/jails/crochet /bin/sh

gives jail: Undefined variable.

How does one manually start the jail?

I would like to start the jail manually not automagically on boot

I want to be "in the jail" when it starts to run crochet from there ie a command prompt.

OK what did I do incorrectly?
