Why can't I move this hyper-v guest from Windows 8.1 RSAT?

I have a virtual machine running Windows 8.1 that I use for a lot of my administration.

I have 3 Hyper visors. One is an old one, mshv-03 that's running Hyper-V 2012
THe other two are set up in a cluster, but are mshv-01 and mshv-02. Theyre running Hyper-V 2012 R2.

When I attempt to move the guest (any guest, it doesn't seem to matter) FROM mshv-03 to either mshv-01 or mshv-02 I get the error pictured in the attached file. Im logged in as domain administrator on the virtual management 8.1 PC.

If however I initiate the move from my physical win 8 PC, where I am logged on with ANOTHER domain administrator account (but not the same one) the move happens fine.

Thoughts?

There are a lot of changes in Hyper-V, that Windows 8.1 and Server 2012R2 know about and Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 don't know about we are now at Hyper-V V2. S2K12/Win8 use Hyper-V V1. For instance a live move/copy can be done without shutting down the vm in R2 and not in S2K12.  

Windows 8 and S2K12 work great together with hype-v but 8.1 needs to be used for the R2 version for best results

that's the issue though. The cluster and management PC are 2012 R2 / 8.1, but I cant move from my "old" 2012 Hyper-V server.

If I log on to an "old" Win 8 PC though the move goes just fine. Its backwards from what Id expect.

That said, I have seen some other odd things - for example when running FCM from the RSAT 8 tools it will show no VMs available to install as a clustered role. If you log in to the 8.1 RSAT though suddenly the VMs are visible. THAT kind of thing I get though. It makes sense after a fashion.

But this thing Im describing seems to be backwards.

No one else weighed in to what is arguably an ambiguous problem at best.

Some of the Evals from Microsoft of Server 2012R2 are type 1 vhd's and hyper-v won't find them if you say t hey are type 2 ... which is easily figured out after a bit of head scratching.
