Join Ed Liberman for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing checkpoints, part of Windows Server 2016: Configure Hyper-V.
- [Instructor] One of my favorite features…when using Hyper-V,…or really any virtualization technology for that matter,…is something called checkpoints.…A checkpoint is a snapshot of the exact state…of a virtual machine at a certain point in time.…What's cool about having these checkpoints…is not just that you can take these snapshots…but that you can revert back to them…at any point in the future if you need to do so.…
Let's take a look at this.…Here, I'm running a Windows Server 2016 computer,…got the Hyper-V role installed.…In the Server Manager, let's go to the Tools menu…and we'll select the Hyper-V Manager.…Here in the Hyper-V Manager, you see we have HOST-1,…and that is the Hyper-V host that we're managing,…and on this host, we have a virtual machine called Demo VM.…Now, this VM has the Windows Server 2016 operating system…installed on it as its guest operating system.…
You see it's currently in a running state,…and in fact, let me go ahead and double-click on it.…This will connect us to the machine,…and go ahead and log in.…
