Is there a way to export a virtual machine running on XenServer with all its past snapshots? I have tried to export a VM through XenCenter (right click on the machine and "Export..."). After importing it ("File > Import..."), all the past snapshots were gone.

There is a way to export single snapshots by selecting them individually, but then they become standalone VMs, and I would prefer to store the relationships between them.
