When creating and running Hyper-V 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 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.



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