Creating a new Jail on new GUI but it doesn't show up in new GUI
This problem has been seen a few times and folks have made a complaint about it but I didn't see a bug report for it (maybe I missed it). Basically if you create a new jail using the new GUI, that jail is not listed in the new GUI so you need to use the old GUI to access it. Having to use two GUIs to run FreeNAS is a bit odd and unfavorable.

To add to Joe's comments: What happens is that when you create a jail in the new UI, it is still a Warden-based jail. This contradicts a blurb in the FreeNAS 11.1-BETA1 User Guide that states:
"Since jails created in the old UI use the warden backend, jails created in the new UI use the iocage backend, and both use different API versions, they are not compatible."
That being said, jails that were created using the iocage backend (possible using the command line), do show up in the new UI. They can be started and stopped in the new UI, but the edit function doesn't work either, as the screen is still warden-based.

For beta-1, the jails ui was not finished. create jails using iocage web socket, but the list ui is using the rest API. that's why the newly created jail doesn't show up. I already finished jails ui last week. This problem was solved.
