Subject Re: Help in importing VM
Date Mon, 08 Jun 2015 10:29:28 GMT
Thank you Vladim...
but it's a little strange... I did snapshot on the original VM but I've
also created a new VM from that snapshot, this should clone the entire vhd,
isn't it?

However, this is the results of the command, where I can see that this VHD
is still connected to the other VM?
