Description

I think it would be not only useful, but practical to have the ability to specify multiple Jail roots. This would serve several purposes:

1. Allow seamless Jail migrations to bigger or faster disks
2. Allow jails to be placed on separate disks, where speed for one jail may be a concern (74 GIG 15k SAS Drive), or size may be a concern for another (mounted to a Z-pool).

I am curious as to whether this can be done, as I think it would be a great addition to the FreeNAS suite.

Not to be fixed right now, maybe with the next plugins implementations something like this could be considered.
