Create a virtual machine checkpoint: Windows Server 2012 R2: Configure and Manage High Availability

In this video, Robert McMillen talks about how to and why to create a Hyper-V Virtual Machine checkpoint. Checkpoints give you a point in time snapshot of your VM in case it doesn’t reboot after applying updates or installing new hardware. The reason we create a checkpoint is to ensure that if we apply any updates or install HW that we can go back to our original working configuration if the VM doesn’t come back online. This adds high availability to an administrator on a reboot.
