i have been trying to move a VM from one server which is running server 2012 to another server running Server 2012 R2.  

has anyone ever attempted to export the VM and import it into the scenario listed above?  will there be any version conflicts of any kind?

thanks in advance!!

As long as you export, import, and then install updated integration components, it works fine and is officially a supported migration path.Note that this is a one-time thing though. Once imported, you *cannot* go back to 2012
