Please make sure the following requirements are met:
Otherwise, the backup job might fail on checkpoint creation with one of the errors listed below.
This issue occurs because Windows can't query the cluster service inside the guest VM. To fix this issue, ensure that the cluster feature is installed on all guest VMs and the cluster service is running.
This issue occurs because the VHDS disk is used as a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV), which cannot be used for creating checkpoints. To fix this issue, you need to use each disk as a shared disk instead of a Cluster Shared Volume. You can do this by using the "Remove from Cluster Shared Volume" option in the cluster manager GUI.
This issue occurs because the shared drive was offline in the guest cluster. To fix this issue, make sure that all shared drives in the cluster that are part of the backup are online.
This issue occurs because of a permission issue. To fix this issue, the folder that holds the VHDS files and their snapshot files must be modified to give the VMMS process additional permissions. To do this, follow these steps:
get-vm | fl name, id
Name : BackupVM Id : d3599536-222a-4d6e-bb10-a6019c3f2b9b Name : BackupVM2 Id : a0af7903-94b4-4a2c-b3b3-16050d5f80f
icacls <Folder with VHDS> /grant "NT VIRTUAL MACHINE\<VM GUID>:(OI)F"
icacls "c:\ClusterStorage\Volume1\SharedClusterDisk" /grant "NT VIRTUAL MACHINE\a0af7903-94b4-4a2c-b3b3-16050d5f80f2:(OI)F" icacls "c:\ClusterStorage\Volume1\SharedClusterDisk" /grant "NT VIRTUAL MACHINE\d3599536-222a-4d6e-bb10-a6019c3f2b9b:(OI)F"
