Migrate Fortimanager to new appliance

I'm moving FortiManger (and Analzyer) from hyper-v to KVM. Is it as simple as spinning up the new appliance and restoring the config or are there steps to do after that? 
 
I've setup the new appliance and restored the config but I don't see any of my policies/objects/scripts. Is there a separate step for this? All I can find for documentation is this: https://help.fortinet.com/fmgr/50hlp/56/5-6-2/FMG-FAZ/2400_System_Settings/0200_Dashboard/0430_Migrating%20the%20Configuration.htm
 
Thanks

A restore won't work because the model is changing.  Use migrate.  See Technical Note: Using 'exec migrate' to migrate to a new FortiAnalyzer / FortiManager model

So export backup the config from the current FortiManager, then use exec migrate to import the config to the new appliance?

I just had to migrate from one hardware FortiAnalyzer to another one.  I posted some comments on it at https://forum.fortinet.com/tm.aspx?m=183032.  One of the gotchas is making sure you have ADOMs enabled/disabled to match the original device before starting the migration.

Good point, tanr.  I have added a note about the multi-ADOM scenario in the KB article.
