Can a TVS-671 backup VMs to a TS-420?

I need to re-create the Storage Pool on my 671 (pre snapshot setup). I have a TS-420 with plenty of free space on it.

Is it possible to have the 671 use the Virtualization Station backup function to save the VMs to the 420?

I know I can stop the VMs and backup their image files, but what about the configs? I'm assuming that's what the backup function within VMstation is supposed to do?

To come back to this, no there's not a simple single-click way to back them up, and even less for restoring. Fun part was discovering at a certain point the VMs could no longer be backed up from inside Virtualization Station because their format was too old. I had to clone them and back them up again. Restoring was tedious too as it didn't want to let me restore them individually. I had to import them again from the backup set (really just a folder full of files) from the TS-420.

But then the fresh install crashed and now I have to do it all over again.
