I have a Server 2012 Hyper-V host with numerous Server 2012 guests. Two of my guests are doing what I believe to be "saved state backups" and I need to figure out how to disable this as it interrupts my users when it happens during the day. I've been logged into the Host and seen it in action, the Status column says "Backing up..." and the State column for only two of the guests goes to Saved. I handle local snapshot backup using a third party solution and I also replicate the guests to an identical setup off-site so this Hyper-V backup that is happening is not needed. Preferably I will be able to turn it off as I'm sure its using resources I don't need it to be using. If it can't be stopped I need to figure out how to configure it so it doesn't do saved state. I would also like to know where the schedule is for this backup if it can't be disabled.
Here are the things I've tried/verified:
-Unchecked backup integration service
-Disabled Hyper-V Volume Shadow Copy Requestor service
-I performed a manual snapshot with the third-party service to ensure this is not what triggers the issue
-Snapshot file location is in the same place as the VHD
-Only basic disks exist in the problem guests
-I've updated Windows
