This is inside the VM, at the OS level?

Do you just want copy files and folders?

Could you transfer across the network, using robocopy ?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

If it is inside the VM simply copy over the vmdks(and create a new machine)  or the entire machine can be copied .. this is the nice part about VM's They don't care where they are being run from..

that is if it as at the host level you want to change the o/s .. you might be able to upgrade the operating systems if the o/s's are supported in the upgrade scenario.
