This article will guide on how to choose between #Standard or #production #checkpoints in Hyper-V. We also look into the various aspects of standard and production checkpoints.
Hyper-V checkpoints allow IT #administrators to easily save the existing state of a virtual machine before any changes are made so that if a problem crops up due to the changes, the VM can revert to its previous state. A #snapshot of the virtual machine #memory state is not taken when using a production checkpoint.
To Change checkpoints to production or standard checkpoints:
1. In Hyper-V Manager, right-click the virtual machine and click Settings.
2. Under the Management section, select Checkpoints.
3. Select either production checkpoints or standard checkpoints.
