When creating and running Hyper-V 2016 backup or replication job the following message is displayed:
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 Checkpoints to create a snapshot of a VM before running a job. The possible reason is that checkpoints were not enabled in Hyper-V settings.
