  • Hi,

    What operating system version are your guest virtual machines (VMs) running?

    Can you check that the Integration Services are all in OK status?

    Get-VMIntegrationService -VMName "MyVM"


    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Hi,

    Did you go through the logs?

    Eventviewer --> Applications & services --> Microsoft --> Windows --> Hyper-V VMMS and other Hyper-V related logs

    This may give you some clue

  • The VSS of "MyServer02" is in an error state, which might be a reason to why production snapshots don't work on the "MyServer02", you could try restarting the MyServer02 to check if it helps.

    For "MyServer01", check the event logs for any more clues.

  • Well it looks like the production checkpoint got created on your "MyServer01", but maybe your applications are not VSS-aware, so it was not included in the "Production Checkpoint".

    • Use Standard Checkpoints for applications that are not VSS-aware
    • Use Production Checkpoints for applications which are VSS-aware.

    It might be easier to identify the issues if we would know what kind of applications you are running on the virtual machines (VMs).

  • Hi

    The logs I meant are to be seen in the hyper-v server not on the VMs.

    Eventviewer --> Applications & services --> Microsoft --> Windows --> Hyper-V VMMS and other Hyper-V related logs

  • Hi,

    Are you trying to take a checkpoint of Domain controller?

    For DCs checkpoints are not allowed. It has a different procedure.
