I'm setting up a few jails on my FreeBSD 6.0 box and when I run jls to

The problem is that when I kill a jail with kill -TERM -1, thats what the
man page tells me to use, it still is listed when I run jls. Why is that
and is there any way to clear the jls list? Where does jls get the list
of the jails?

The jail is not completely did in that case. It still "owns" some
resources of some sort.

Is there some way of finding out what resources? Right now, on one of my

# jls
JID IP Address Hostname Path
4 /vm/1/
2 /vm/1/
1 /vm/1/

It doesn't bother me too much, as 1/2 doesn't appear to be affecting 4,
but still ...

See my reply.

Other things that I have seen are if you have a FS mounted inside your jail and that did not umount completely or appropriately, for example.

For example, I use file backed md devices as jail file systems and I mount various pieces of a master jail inside my jail. If I do not umount everything cleanly before shutting the jail down it remains listed in the jls list
