    Note: it is essential to export as a package and not a Library Image

  3. Copy the exported package to the new Manager
  4. Use the relevant "register XX Image" Wizard to import the image to the new Manager depending on if you are importing an OS or boot Image.
    1. Select the "Register exported XX Image from folder" option
