Move OVM 2.2 guests to 3.11 OVM

I have to upgrade OVM 2.2 to 3.1.1 in the same server, I am considering a fresh install.

I would like to know how to backup the guests and move them back to OVM 3.1.1 once installed, I have though two options

1. shutdown the guests and export them as templates, send the template to a temporary server
2. shutdown the guests and tar-gzip the directory, send the template to a temporary server

Is there any other option? My repository is in a Server Pool, can I leave it mouted in another OVM Server, upgrade the 2.2 to 3.1.1 and mount the repository which is 2.2 based?

Thanks a lot
