Unable to delete checkpoints

Post by mflanders »

Case #03892515.

I am using the free version of Veeam to run a backup to a NAS via a PowerShell script. This works fine for all my VM's bar one. One fails with an error message of "Failed to call wmi method 'ConvertToReferencePoint'. Wmi error: '32768'
Failed to convert snapshot to referencePoint snapshot path '\ABC-HOST\root\virtualization\v2:Msvm_VirtualSystemSettingData.InstanceID="Microsoft:BDC65F6E-2A00-4A9B-9FD0-C6A0E70A7C52"'. "

It creates a checkpoint but with no option to delete.

If anyone has knowledge of how to delete these checkpoints and what is causing the initial issue that would be great. Thanks

Hi Mark.

Any chance that you are on Veeam B&R 9.5 update2(build 9.5.0.1038) or earlier?
In that case it really looks like a known issue.

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick response.

I have updated to 9.5.4.2866 and will run the backup later to check.
