I'm trying to export my VMs, as I'm migrating to a new SAN, but I'm getting error messages just trying to export my VMs.
I'm running win 2012 R2.
When trying to export from hyper-V, i Get this error:

So I tried a lot of things that does not work.

I have tried giving my host servers permissions:

I have tried renaming the VM:

I have tried powershell to export it, still fails:

Here's the error message I get:
export error
If anyone has any ideas how I can get my VMs to be exported, that would be wonderful.
