Migrating Templates

Hi there,

I am trying to migrate a VM template from one Cluster to another. I wanted to just scp the conf file but it will not allow me to write in the qemu-server folder. Any other vm conf file is no problem but the templates are a big problem for me. Any ideas?
How exactly you try to move the templates?

I have copied templates to an other Datacenter without any problems in PVE.
