Given that the process for updating integration components in System Center Virtual Machine Manager has been optimized for large scale operations – and obvious question is: how do I script this?

The answer is quite simple.  All you need to do is to get the virtual machine object and run:

Set-VM –VM $vm –InstallVirtualizationGuestServices $TRUE –RunAsynchronously

Here is an example of me running it on my server:

Note that you will need to stop the virtual machine first (if it is running) before calling this command.

  • I wish there was a way to set the VM to update its integration services on next boot, like <competitor> allows. Much more manageable.
