There is no direct way of moving the Data from 1 server to another. Here are some considerations:

This Article has detailed Instructions on using Distributed SCM capability of RTC.

For Work Items You can export them and then Import them to the new server using this article

For Process templates  for the PA , If you have custom ones, Simple use Export and Import Feature.
Thats first thing you would do for WI Import . So that a PA is created already in the second server identical to the other server where the WIs are exported from.
