Replicate Configuration Version

Post by mkaec » Nov 06, 2017 3:20 pm

I recently upgraded the rest of our Hyper-V hosts from 2012 R2 to 2016. I have one Replication job in Veeam. I have upgraded the configuration version of all of the VMs from 5.0 to 8.0, except the _replica. When I attempted it, I got a warning "This virtual machine has online checkpoints or is in a saved state. This operation will discard all saved state information including saved states associated with checkpoints."

The original VM that is being replicated was upgraded to 8.0 and the replication job seems to run fine. Is it recommended to just leave the replica with configuration version 5.0?

If you want to preserve current replica restore points, staying on old configuration version seems to be the only option. Otherwise, you can perform permanent failover, basically consolidating all existing restore points, and update configuration afterwards. Thanks.

Thanks. Preserving the old replica restore points was not critical. I ended up upgrading the configuration and let Hyper-V delete the restore points. Then I ran a replication job and it created a new restore point and has been running fine since.
