Hi
Basically the Drive that the Jails are hosted on is running out of =20
space.
By adding another mounted Partition I will have more space.

If I add a new Drive to the Machine ...
mount it under /data2 can I just stop the jails and copy them across =20
modify the jails.conf and start it up ?
I guess the best procedure should be to back them up and restore them =20=

there ?

Thanks for the help
Karl
