I followed the update instructions here to update from 10.1 to 10.3. My only way of accessing this server is via ssh, and I have now been locked out (the ssh address is no longer known by my PC). Are there any steps to take / configurations to check to prevent this from happening again? I cannot...
Sorry for creating a new thread but I thought it would be better to start a new one either to respawn the old one.
But I didn't understand from an old discussion if it was a bug of ezjail-admin or it was a normal behaviour. But how to update jails in that case? And how do I understand update is...

I'm keeping getting weird messages when I try to update my email managed jails:
I'm on FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE-p11 and ezjail v3.4.2

This is what I'm getting:
ezjail-admin update -u
I have tried ports-mgmt/poudriere because some unexpected issue related to python and curses has crept into my ports system after using ports-mgmt/portmaster quite a long time without having it noted early. I hope I have strictly followed /usr/ports/UPDATING all the time :D. Now I have a few...
