I know that in order to move a hyper-v guest server from one host to another you have to use the export command in order to move it. I am currently using Windows Backup to backup the hyper-v guest and have successfully restored the virtual on the same machine. But my problem is that I cannot restore the same virtual to another Hyper-V server. I would like to quickly migrate our virtual over to a second Hyper-V server. And importing/exporting is not an option since the virtual need to be online 24/7 Does anyone have any ideas as a good way to restore a virtual on another server without using import/export?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can use VMM to move VMs without Import/Export. Also, if you have them in a cluster, you can quick migrate the VMs. Finally, with R2, you can Live Migrate the VMs, so they have zero downtime.
