Any alternative way to export/import vm's with 2008r2? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any alternative/more reliable way of importing vm's with hyper-v? We are evaluating hyper-v for a new web server but frankly the importing function does not appear ready for production use..ie if you have a failure and need a backup you can't depend on the importing to actually work.

    We have tried testing it but get various error messages on the same folder, which leads me to believe they are false error messages.   Sometimes it will say the the MS virtual CD is missing, sometime it gives no error code and other times it will say error importing the computer system file failed with no other explanation.  

    So is there a better way that works? Or 3rd party utility?
