DON'T clone it. Export the VM from the source host and import it on the destination.

unfortunetely I couldn't export it, received an error message related to "access denied 0x80070005  My host is not a part of domain, it is by itself in "workgroup". I came across article that recommends to add a host pc to a target share with full rights and the same thing in Security tab on the target share, couldn't find the name of the host machine in a workgroup on the domain share. I also don't have enough storage on the local host to do a local export and then maybe copy it to a network.
Your thoughts.. Thanks.

Agreed, don't clone it. Export.

Attach an external drive and export to that.  Or export to the local disk and then manually copy.

(The permissions issue going between hosts gives me a headache so I tend to just do that).

Of course, you could also just shut the VM down, move it to the other host and import it in place.

Thank You. Exported Locally, Copied File To Another Host, Imported Locally. Worked Fine.
