I have a VHD on a share on the network that I am trying to import into Citrix XenServer. But everytime I try it runs forever and then finally fails. I was told by the Backup Vendor DATTO that I needed to copy the file over to the Xen Server. They said copy it to the local storage and then try to import it. But I can't figure out how to do that.

you can copy files to xenserver using winscp. But you can't import vm's from this place.
enable view of hidden / system devices.
Check if there a "transfer-vm" is created. This VM shoud start if you try to import the VM. Often at the console of this VM we see DHCP errors.

More or less just told me I couldn't do what I wanted to do so I abandoned the issue and imported the VHD into a Microsoft Hyper-V instead.
