How about a USB hard drive? You should be able to copy off of that.
I haven't run the Hyper-V server on my DL380, I'm running full Server 2k8 on
it. But you get a command window on the parent, correct? Have you tried "net
use " from that to connect to a share where the file is? Then you could copy
without having to involve extra hardware.
