Update: Hyper-V 2012 R2 – Recommended Updates and Hotfixes

2 Comments on Update: Hyper-V 2012 R2 – Recommended Updates and Hotfixes

Who is using Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V and Hyper-V Clusters, will soon find some issues or Problems…
So Microsoft publishes a list of recommended hotfixes and updates for Hyper 2012 R2 Servers and Clusters.

Here you can find the two updated lists:

Recommended hotfixes, updates, and known solutions for Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Environments
Recommended hotfixes and updates for Windows Server 2012 R2-based failover clusters

Also i have updated the script to find the actual patch state:

Hyper-V Server and Cluster Update Check

The script is looking for recommended Hotfixes and updates on a list of Hyper-V Servers. If the KB is not found it will be highlighted in the output and you are able to fix this fast and install the fix.

Happy Patching 😉

    I just go through the updates and add them to the XML manually.
