Not directly.

You may export the policy and objects via the API/CLI and import them into a new server.

Here's one example

Gateway objects cannot be easily migrated, and will need to be re-created.

Have you got any more information on this as I have a couple of customers looking to consolidate multiple managers on to a single HA management solution. 

Would be good to understand how I can export the policies/object databases and then bring these across.

Hi Scott,

What versions are they running? I have a customer consolidating 5 managers into 1 with the help of Lifecycle Management Services at the moment. They are going from R77.30 to R80.20.

The best way would be to deploy MDS (Provider-1) and add 2 separate CMAs there.

Kind regards,

This would require additional licence purchase. Unfortunately, I am involved after the solution has been agreed.
