Checkpoints redirection is not considered as best practices

Post by Pollmann_M »

We've run the CONFIGURATION ASSESSMENT report against our Hyper-V 2019 environment. On several host we get a warning under the header 'Checkpoints redirection is not considered as best practices'.
I've run the following commando: Get-SCVirtualMachine | Where {$_.CheckpointLocation -ne $_.Location}
This returns nothing.

Can anyone tell me which environment variable this section of the report looks at?

Hello,
Redirection is set in Hyper-V VM properties.
Thanks

I don't have SCVMM in my lab, however Hyper-V powershell command object properties are different on Windows Server Hyper-V 2019

Code: Select all

Get-VM | Where {$_.CheckpointFileLocation -ne $_.ConfigurationLocation}
works fine to me to find redirected snapshot VMs.
/Cheers!

Thank you for your responses. I've run this command: Get-VM | Where {$_.CheckpointFileLocation -ne $_.ConfigurationLocation}
I get no results. I don't have any VM with Checkpoint redirection, however I still get the warnings in the report.

There should be little [+] sign next to the host\cluster name in the report that will show exact VM name in question. Try checking that Hyper-V VM properties directly without PowerShell?

I've compared the Hyper-V settings of two machines, one with the warning and one without. They are identical. I've also compared the directory structure, that's the same as well.
