I did see that article. It seemed like quite a process, and copying seemed to be easier.  I will give that a try Andrew.

It's entirely up to you, less steps to go wrong, less files to copy...

time to copy, is the same, which ever way you do it.

Is there connection between the sites?

Make sure the VM has no Snapshots.
