Changing the management console with an existing SIC

We have two GAIA R80.10 appliances with one setup as management.  We purchased a Smart-1 to act as management as well as the central data collector.  My question what is the process of moving the SIC from appliance A to the Smart-1?  Currently, Appliance B has a SIC to Appliance A.  I need them both to point to the Smart-1?  Understand I need to use Python to move the Policies over, I am looking for where and how to start?  I am a newbie to this level of Check Point administration.

Hello Timothy,

I understand that you have two HA manager R80.10 and you purchased a Smart-1 for replace the current enviroment. The way easier for do it is run a migrate export of primary manager and run migrate import on Smart-1 running R80.10 Fresh Install. With this process, all SIC with managed firewalls, rules, nats are preseverd.

I hope help you.
