Hi Roger,If you go to

Hi Roger,

If you go to "Monitor -> MAP -> Export Maps"  then you can export maps from your current system. Then go to your new PI installation & "Monitor -> MAP -> Import Maps" & select exported maps.

Here is a screenshort of Export Map option page.

Finally resolved issue.

Finally resolved issue. Cleared all reports, performed backup form the GUI. After the backup completed Prime completed the import with no problems. It did take about 10 hours total, 254 floor plans, 1024 access points and 300 switch stacks.

 Migrating Cisco WCS Licenses

 Migrating Cisco WCS Licenses to Cisco Prime NCS Licenses
The Cisco Prime Network Control System uses a single-tier license model. When Cisco WCS BASE or WCS PLUS licenses are being migrated, licenses will be mapped to the new Cisco Prime NCS single-tier model, as shown in Figure 1. Customers are able to migrate their existing WCS licenses by purchasing the migration SKU (L-WCS-NCS1-M-K9) as also indicated.
