TechTip #46
ZFS datasets are also called “file systems” for good reason: Moving data between them at the command line does not instantly move the data, but rather copies it to the destination and then deletes it from the source. NFS users may also find that they have to share datasets individually because any two datasets can have conflicting inode numbers.
