Hello gurus,

a simple question.

I have a running Server that has 3 VM images.

I would like to "move" those images from that server to a bigger server.

Any tutorial how to do this in a smooth way ?

I don't mind stopping them and then restarting them on the new server.

Thank you

That is a simple question.  

Stop the running instance, copy the .VHD file to the new server, create a new VM usiing the copy, start the new VM.  It is really that simple.

Malmensa is correct.

Alternatively you can export the VM and import it onto the new host. This will retain the VM configuration aswell as the VHD files.
Either way ensure you have deleted/merged any snapshots created before carrying out any moves.

But what about the settings ? (2 HDDs in the VM....etc... )

What do I do ? Do I create a new VM and point out the VHD or what ?
thanks

Create a new VM, and specifiy that you want to use an existing disk image. I assume that you will be allocating more resources on the more powerful machine, so is easiest to just configure a new one.
