Description

When adding storage to a jail, one has to create the target directory first. Technically this makes sense, but userfriendliness is something else. As far as I remember, in pre 11.2 releases this was handled automatically. I wish this magic back. Switching between shell and GUI is anoying. If this feature will not be implemented, please point out the necessary steps clearly here http://doc.freenas.org/11.2/jails.html#additional-storage.
