Hyper-V Export Error

Kram80 asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-06
When trying to export a VM in Hyper-V, I am receiving the following error:

Failed to copy file from 'E:\Hyper-V\Virtual Hard Disks\machine.vhd' to 'I:\VM Export\machine\Virtual Hard Disks\machine.vhd': One or more arguments are invalid (0x80070057)

I'm trying to setup a test environment to test another implementation.  The machine I'm trying to export is a DC.  I've read this is not best
practice, but this was suggested to me by one of our consultants.  I understand not to ever put this VM into production and am assuming
this is why MS states this is not recommended.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
