Question on import/export of VM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 2012 R2 VM on a 2016 host.

    The 2012 R2 VM is a domain member and running SharePoint.

    I need to reload the 2016 host.

    If I do an export to an extra hard drive in the server and reload the host, I can import it again without issue?

  • Yes, should be no problem. After rebuild, patch fully, add Hyper-V role, import virtual machine, done.
