Moving a virtual server using BIG-IQ

Is it possible to move a virtual server from one BIG-IP to another using BIG-IQ? I'm new to BIG-IQ and so far it looks like virtual servers are permanently tied to a device. The only way seems to clone it and give it a different name and IP.

Moving vip config via BIG-IQ from one LB to another LB may not possible due to network configurations (VLAN, Self/Float-IP,subnet,etc) dependency. However you can copy existing vip configuration template and make necessary changes and deploy it. I have gone through some BIG-IQ usecase where they have defined some settings to generate template. :)

Thanks. That does make sense about being dependent on network configurations. Can you elaborate on what you mean by a VIP configuration template? I don't think I've seen any sort of templating feature for virtual servers other than cloning.

I agree cloning future are there but I was going through BIG-IQ usecase video. They are saying copy the vip template and modify per requirement and deploy it. So far I haven't use such option.
