Yep. I believe, VeeamZIP should meet your expectations. It’s a very useful tool especially when you’re trying to perform one-time backup or migrate VMs between hyper-v hosts. In fact, it’s the exact use case of it.
• Right-click required VM • VeeamZIP it • Restore VM to a new host
In addition, please be aware that you don’t have to be a paid customer to get this functionality, since it is available even in free VB&R edition.

I need to move a VM from a 2008 R2 Hyper-v server at one location to a 2012 Hyper-v server at another location. I have Veeam installed at the destination location. Can I just use Veeam zip to zip up the VM from the source location and restore it using Veeam at the destination? This VM has 3 hard VHD files. Any tricks or things to be aware of?

I have additional question.
Is it possible to migrate a VM between Hyper-V 2008 R2 and Hyper-V 2012 R2 hosts, using VeeamZIP? As far as I’m aware, the latter uses different WMI namespace than former does. Wouldn’t this be problem? It certainly is for native Hyper-V export/import tools, as one can’t migrate VM directly to Hyper-V 2012 R2 without updating namespace to V2 first.
