Hi Cluster Fans,


We’ve just published documentation describing the upgrade path for clustered VMs on 2008 Failover Clusters to 2008 R2 Failover Clusters.  Hyper-V Upgrades: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957256


[Update: 11/12/09] A new cluster migration guide has been published which describes additional considerations needed for DFS-Replication, DHCP, (MS)DTC, Exchange, File Server, MSMQ, Print, SQL, VMs and 3rd Party Resources: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee791924(WS.10).aspx


 This complements our other migration documentation to get you to Windows Server 2008 R2.

·         Migration from R2 RC to R2 RTM: http://blogs.msdn.com/clustering/archive/2009/09/02/9890272.aspx

o   This has other steps and recommendations for many clustered resources.
