Live VM Export–Windows Server 2012 R2


Anyone perform VM export on previous version of Hyper-V? Do you like it?

You probably find it irritating especially the VM is up and running. In order to perform export, you need to shut down the VM and this will eventually impact your production environment.

Well, with Windows Server 2012 R2 (tested on Preview Edition), you can now perform export

a) A running VM – without any downtime. (not require to shutdown)

b) A checkpoint of a VM ,while the VM is running – without any downtime

Check out below screenshot which I’ve taken. VM state is running and status is exporting (66%)


With this features, we can eliminate zero downtime to create a clone VM.
