Clustered Hyper-V Upgrades from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2

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.

·         General R2 Migration Guide: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc730990.aspx

·         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.
