When creating and running Hyper-V 2016 / or Hyper-V 2019 backup or replication job, the following message is displayed:v

No Format
Backup of the <VM_name> VM has failed
Source host could not create temporary checkpoint required to back up the <VM_name> VM.


NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses Hyper-V 2016/Hyper-V 2019 Checkpoints checkpoints to create a snapshot of a VM before running a job. The possible reason for the message is that the checkpoints were not were not enabled in Hyper-V settings.

Image Modified 


  1. Enable Checkpoints in Hyper-V Manager
  2. Refresh the Inventory
  3. Re-run the job.
