Checkpoints capture the state of a virtual machine at a certain moment in time. You can then use the checkpoint to restore the virtual machine to the state it was in when the checkpoint was created.

To create a checkpoint

  1. From the Services Manager menu bar, click Services > Virtual Machine > Virtual Machines.
  2. Select the virtual machine for which you want to create a checkpoint.
  3. On the Checkpoints tab, in the Checkpoint Management table, click Add. A blank text box appears in the Name column.
  4. Type the name of the checkpoint and then click Update.

To restore a virtual machine to a previous state

  1. From the Services Manager menu bar, click Services > Virtual Machine > Virtual Machines.
  2. Select the virtual machine whose state you want to restore.
  3. On the Checkpoints tab, select the checkpoint you want to use.
  4. Click Restore. The restore request is sent to the host machine. To view the progress of the restore, click the Status tab. The Most Recent Task section displays the progress of each task the host machine processes.
