Backup/Restore Template on other hosts - Task Error

a template (the new virtual machine templates with cloud-init) I have backed up on the source host with diferent file systems (SATA and SSD). When the restore on the other machine was started, I get an error, that the storage dos not exists! But I have set in the dialog box the new storage, why Proxmox 5.4-13 (Linux xxxxx 4.13.4-1-pve #1 SMP PVE 4.13.4-26 (Mon, 6 Nov 2017 11:23:55 +0100) x86_64 GNU/Linux) ignore this?
Workarround for this Proxmox Bug:

1) Clone the template to a VM (possible it´s important to use a storage without ZFS?!)
2) Make a backup from the VM
3) Transfer the backup files to the other machine
4) Make a restore from the backup files to a new VM on a storage you like
5) Make from the VM on the other machine a new template
