Virtual System Migration and clustering

I cam across a scenario where we need to migrate a virtual system from a PA device to another . devices are the same model . Is there any suggestions ? what is the best approach to this ?

Also , if a PA device is running virtual systems how we can add it to cluster ? what happens to VSystems ? do they automatically replicated to the other node ?

> Using cli commands like "load config partial" you can select the config from one vsys and tell where you want to place the content.

-If a PA device is running virtual systems and you need to add it to a cluster, all devices must have multi vsys capabilities enabled.        Device>Setup>Management>Multi Virtual System Capability

-And yes, VSYS configuration is automatically replicated as long as you have Config Sync enabled.

-Can you provide more details about the scenario?

Thank you very much .

what are important things while transfering VSYS from one device to another ? I didn't find any standard guidelines . I understand the part that we can partially import the configuration but there are some shared objects and other dependencies . any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

What about migrating shared objects and profiles first before migrating the VSYS?
