For Hyper-V VM replicas created with replication jobs, Veeam Backup & Replication 8.0 produces a full replica and a chain of checkpoints. The Veeam Hyper-V: VM Checkpoint Analysis monitor was not designed to be triggered for checkpoints produced during replica creation, and will fire alerts for Hyper-V VM replicas.

To eliminate such alerts, the Veeam Hyper-V Required Overrides MP includes an override that allows you to disable the Veeam HyperV: VM Checkpoint Analysis monitor for the Veeam Backup and Replication replica VMs (Hyper-V) group. This group has dynamic membership and includes all VMs that have the _replica suffix appended to the VM display name (this is the default suffix used in replication jobs).

For VMs with a large number of disk writes, the checkpoints can grow large and also cause the Veeam HyperV: VM Checkpoint Analysis monitor to trigger repetitive alerts. To eliminate alerts for such VMs, you can disable the monitor for the Veeam Backup and Replication replica VMs (Hyper-V) group: use a non-default suffix for your replicas to either modify the group membership rule to use your chosen suffix, or explicitly add your replica VMs to the group.
