I am having a hard time trying to migrate my instances to another openstack installation.

My understanding is that I could do instance --> snapshot --> image and then migrate this image to another openstack

I started following this document (https://docs.openstack.org/user-guide/cli-use-snapshots-to-migrate-instances.html) but the image I get downloaded using "glance image-download" command has 0 size which doesn't sounds right.

I was wondering whether I am doing something wrong or I am following the wrong instructions, unfortunately I haven't been able to find another documentation and #openstack at the iRC channel has not helped me either.

Could someone guide me on how to migrate an instance?

Thank you very much
