Status of Export RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just started an export of a Virtual Machine from my 2008 Hyper-V Server.  It doesnt have any sort of status indicator but I can see that it clearly has created files in the destination folder.  I understand exports take a long time.  Is there any way to know when its completed, or how long Windows estimates it to take?

  • Center pane of Hyper-V manager.

    Select the VM to highlight and take hold of hte horizontal scroll bar and go to the far right column.

    You will get a % exported type of update.

    It all depends on the amount of storage consumed by the VM (VHD, snapshots (Live ones add RAM to copy), and the speed of your storage.

  • Hi,

    You can find the satus indicator in your hyper-v management.

    The export period of the exports depend on the size of the virtual machine, for exemple in this vedeo it has taken a short time.
