Warning on Hyper-V hosts under SCVMM

Warning on Hyper-V hosts under SCVMM

  • Comments 4

I have seen this documented in a couple of places now - but I also see a number of people still wondering why this is happening and how to stop it, so I thought I would post it here too.  When you first add a Hyper-V host to SCVMM 2008 you may see a warning icon displayed with the message "Needs Attention" and "Virtualization service version status is not up-to-date".  To get rid of this alert there are three updates that need to be applied to the Hyper-V server:

Once you have these three updates installed everything should come up green.

Cheers,
Ben

  • Post
  • Why Doesn't Anyone Read the Release Notes?

  • Thanks Ben... Will this be released via Windows Update as well as an update to the Hyper-V role?

  • Matm -

    This is not planned at the moment as these updates are not addressing security / crashing issues and are not required by all users.

    Cheers,

    Ben

  • Can one determine what updates are needed?  I have Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 servers that say they need an update.  I perfer to install updates myself so the update option in SCVMM is not helpful for my needs.
