Exporting jails from iocage


I know I am way behind the power curve, but I have been trying to get off of my TrueOS 18.03 box for the past couple of months, because I hate the “nuke and pave” approach.

That said, I am down to the last few items before I rebuild the machine. The one that is being a thorn in my side at the moment is iocage. My 18.03 install has py36-iocage-0.9.10. So I did an iocage export, and it zipped the VM up nicely. Transferred it to my freebsd 12 laptop, and tried to iocage import it, and got

# iocage import worf

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

    raise FileNotFoundError(write_location)
FileNotFoundError: /NX72003/iocage/jails/worf/config.json

So it apparently marks the /iocage/jails/ as readonly.

Is there any way to work around this?
