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.

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.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

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?
