HyperV VM Server 2012

I'm trying to create a Checkpoint on a win2012 R2 Vm , but it say that the operation is not supported. I was able to create Checkpoints on 2 VM machines win8.1 Pro and Win XP Pro.

Is a CheckPoint not supported for VM Server???

Hi Noad,

Do you have a passtrhough disk attached with this VM?
And what is the OS on Hyper-V Host?

Cheers.

Shabarinath

total of 8 drives on the machine, disk 0 & 1 are mirror for O/S disk 2 & 3 are set each for storage one for the VM (disk 2) other for VMHD (disk 3) the other 4 disk are RAID 0 and are set as  pass-through to the HyperV server VM.

the Host O/S is winSrv2012R2

This is not a production Server, its just for me to practice on and learn the ins and out and troubleshoot.

If the VM has a pass-through disk, then Snapshot will not work.

Refer the limitations on using pass-through disks here.

OK,

But I was able to do a Snapshot on VM workstations.
That is because the Vm workstations are not tied into a pass-through disk?
