I always use ezjail_admin update -i =0A=
Then do the normal mergemaster steps for the jails=0A=
mergemaster -iU -D /your/path/to/jail=0A=
You need to do that for every jail you have=0A=
So if you have three jails named jail_1, jail_2 and jail_3, you do this thr=
ee times.=0A=
mergemaster -iU -D /your/path/to/jail_1=0A=
mergemaster -iU -D /your/path/to/jail_2=0A=
mergemaster -iU -D /your/path/to/jail_3=0A=
