How to exporting machines in Hyper-V?

I would like to export e few virtual machines but I don't want them to turn them off.
Is it even possible to export machines in Hyper-V without stopping the virtual machine?

I know I can make a snapshot but can I import them on a new fysical machine?

Thanks in advance!
Clyde.

No. The Virtual Machines MUST be OFF to be Exported.

The Snapshot function will not allow you to Import them on another Hyper-V.

What you will need to do, is to use a V2V Conversion Process, that will convert and copy the machine whilst it is on.

If your disk storage supports it (SAN) you can have the SAN take a snapshot. You can then mount the snapshot and copy the VHD(s) somewhere else and run them. They would be crash consistent, meaning that it would be just like rebooting after they had the power suddenly removed. You also can't start them back on the same network or they will conflict with the originals.
