Hyper-V Program Manager
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.
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?
This is not planned at the moment as these updates are not addressing security / crashing issues and are not required by all users.
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.
