ZFS-PROMOTE(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		ZFS-PROMOTE(8)

NAME
     zfs-promote -- Promotes a clone file system to no longer be dependent on
     its origin	snapshot.

SYNOPSIS
     zfs promote clone-filesystem

DESCRIPTION
     zfs promote clone-filesystem
       The promote command makes it possible to	destroy	the file system	that
       the clone was created from.  The	clone parent-child dependency rela-
       tionship	is reversed, so	that the origin	file system becomes a clone of
       the specified file system.

       The snapshot that was cloned, and any snapshots previous	to this	snap-
       shot, are now owned by the promoted clone.  The space they use moves
       from the	origin file system to the promoted clone, so enough space must
       be available to accommodate these snapshots.  No	new space is consumed
       by this operation, but the space	accounting is adjusted.	 The promoted
       clone must not have any conflicting snapshot names of its own.  The
       zfs-rename(8) subcommand	can be used to rename any conflicting snap-
       shots.
