There's a few things you can try - if you want to play with these, start
with a sandbox you can break :)

For any Foreman objects, like Hostgroups, you can probably do something
with hammer-csv (https://github.com/Katello/hammer-cli-csv) to dump objects
from one host and import them to another. Assuming you have both Foreman
instances set up to handle orchestration to the same proxies, I *think*
that'll work for DNS/DHCP etc

For classes assigned to Hosts *only* there's also an ENC importer. To be
honest, hammer-csv is probably better, as this rake task flattens the
hostgroup structure, but as an alternative, look at "foreman-rake -T | grep

For templates, there's no good way to get them *out* (except maybe
hammer-csv again) as they're stored in the db - but for managing them in
general, you could look to the foreman_templates plugin (
https://github.com/theforeman/foreman_templates) which enables you to use a
git repo as a source of templates. It's a one-way sync though, so you'll
have to populate the repo first.

Hope that helps - do let us know how you get on!
