Hi Gian,

In order to export VM, you need to power it off in XENcenter. But cloud
stack will power it back again. If you shut it down from cloud stack, it
will disappear from XENcenter. That's how XS & ACS works AFAIK.

Simple trick would be, take a snapshot of root disk>>create disk (vhd) from
this snapshot>>Download this vhd and import it into new pool and spin up VM.
