Taken from the 5.1 documentation...

Transferring Resources Using a SAMBA Share
Any appliance can export the resources listed in About Importing and Exporting Resources to another appliance using their SAMBA share directories as staging areas.
Export resources from one appliance to another using SAMBA shares

1.Open the Administrator Portal of the appliance to export resources from.

2.Go to Settings > Resources.
The Resource Management Panel appears.

3.Select Export KBOX Resources.
The Export KBOX Resources page appears, listing all of the resources available to export.
By default, all available resources on the appliance are listed. You can limit the resources to view using the drop-down list and search field on the right side of the screen. Select a resource from the list to display just that resource category. Enter a term in the search field to limit the resources list even further. In this example, only Reports with the term Closed in the description are listed:

4.Select the check boxes of the resources to export, and select Choose action... Export to SAMBA Share.
The Annotate Exported Resource(s) splash screen appears.

5.Enter a description of the components to export, and click Save.
Your exported resources first appear on the Resource Manager Queue page with a Status of New Request. Select the Refresh button to update this page. When finished, the Status changes to Completed. Most import/export tasks only take a moment, but very large resources take longer. This screen does not refresh by itself for several minutes.
The resources you exported are now available on your SAMBA share for other KACE K1000 Appliances to import.

6.Go to Settings > Control Panel, and note the location of the SAMBA share directory in the SAMBA Share Settings section.
You need to copy the appliance resources from this directory to the SAMBA share of the appliance importing the software.

7.On the importing appliance, go to the Administrator Portal > Settings > Control Panel, and click General Settings.
The KBOX Settings: General page appears.

8.In the SAMBA Share Settings section, note the location of the SAMBA share directory.

9.Using a third-party file copying utility, copy the resources from the exporting appliance SAMBA share to the importing appliance the SAMBA share.

10.On the importing appliance, navigate to the Administrator Portal > KBOX Settings > Resources page.
The Resource Management Panel appears:

11.Select the Import KBOX Resources item.
The Import KBOX Resources page appears, listing all of the appliance resources available to import.

12.Select Choose action... Import Resource(s) from SAMBA Share from the drop-down list.
The Import Resources from SAMBA Share Directory page appears.

13.Select the resources to import, and select the Import Resources button.
The Import Resources From SAMBA Directory page appears:

14.Select the resource files to import and select the Import Resources button.
Your imported resources first appear on the Resource Manager Queue page with a Status of New Request. Click Refresh to update this page. When finished, the Status changes to Completed.
Most import/export tasks only take a moment, but very large resources take longer. This screen does not refresh by itself for several minutes.
Once you see a Status of Completed, the resources you imported are available and listed on their respective tabs (Reports, Inventory > Software, Scripting, Distribution > Managed Installations) for your organization to use.
