    Stopping sshd: [FAILED]
    Starting sshd: [ OK ]
    root [/]# _

    but sshd not run:

    Waiting for sshd to restart...............................................................finished.


    sshd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.

    error in terminal :
    There was an error creating the child process for this terminal

    Unfortunately you may have inadvertently damaged your system by moving the virtfs folder. As you have only moved and not deleted the folder recovery may be possible. Do you have a backup image of your entire system?

    VirtFS (Jailed Shell)

    Hello :)

    Yes, per our documentation:

    You could try moving the directory back under /home if you are able to get shell access.

    Thank you.

    I believe you may not be correctly interpreting the disk space /home/virtfs uses. A bind mount is a transparent link between two places on the file system. For example, if a user views the contents of /home/virtfs/username/usr/bin, the user actually sees the contents of /usr/bin. Thus, the /home/virtfs/$user directory itself is not actually using up any additional space than already exists. Data is not actually duplicated.

    Thank you.
