Lightbulb OpenBSD Container - jail docker or podman ?

Hi All,
Wish you Happy New Year 2022 !!

How to configure jail on OpenBSD 6.7 ? (is it possible to configure Openbsd 7.0 jail on openbsd 6.7 jailer host)

can I use docker or podman (or similar container method) to enable containers on openbsd ?

I already explored alpine linux docker image but interested in native openbsd utility if any thing is available for OpenBSD (any version) ..

I can not use vmm as our infrastructure doesnt have support for nested virtualization .

Apprieicate your suggestions!!

OpenBSD does not have Containers or Jails. It has a native hypervisor, vmm(4). The FAQ has a chapter on using this hypervisor: http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq16.html

Please note that Release 6.7 has been unsupported since May 1, 2021.

I've never tried it but there is sysutils/docker-cli. No idea if that will actually do what you want though.

That will only talk to a docker daemon running on a linux host somewhere. It doesn't run the containers.
