SharePoint 2010 - Saved Document Library Template not available between all sites

In SharePoint 2010, we have a web application with one root site collection and about six subsites.

We're consolidating some of the functionality, so my need is to move a document library from one of the subsites to another one of the subsites.(not the root)

The first thing I do is to save the library as a template.

Unfortunately, then it is only available to that site and the root site, when I click on 'More Options'. I need it to be available in one of the other subsites, so I can create a new one there, based on that site template, but since it's not in the list, I can't do it.

How can I make the template which I save, be available to any subsite in the entire web application?

Do the subsites have the same features activated as the source site?

I really haven't checked - - this was not set up by me.
Are you saying that, if the original site has a feature not on the other subsite, then, if I deactivate that feature, it might be possible to transfer it?

Also, is there a way to compare features between 2 sites?

Great tip - I checked and saw a very obvious feature that needed to be implemented on the target site and it worked great.
