NAME
     zfs-promote -- promote clone dataset to no	longer depend on origin	snap-
     shot

SYNOPSIS
     zfs promote clone

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

     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	dataset	to the promoted	clone, so enough space must be avail-
     able 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 sub-
     command can be used to rename any conflicting snapshots.
