Hi Guy,

But if I'm looking at this the right way, I would need to create the VM first, and have to know it's disk configurations, etc.  Then I would have to do a restore.  If I get the disk configurations wrong, what happens to the restore attempt?

I'm coming from a Citrix XenServer world, where I can snapshot, export, and create a new VM from the exported file (import), without needing to know any details of what i am importing.
