When you remove a virtual hard disk from a virtual machine in System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, the .vhd file on the Hyper-V server is deleted without warning

When your SCVMM Server or Admin Client is not directly connected to the Internet you may have the need to download the package from another machine


You can get the fixes from http://catalog.update.microsoft.com and specifying Article 976244 and/or 976246.


You’ll get .cab files containing .msp files which you can install from an elevated Command Prompt.


 


To install the Server rollup specify:


msiexec /p vmmServer64update.msp BOOTSTRAPPED=1


 


To install the Client rollup specify:


msiexec /update vmmClient64Update.mspBOOTSTRAPPED=1


or, if your Admin Machine is 32bit:


msiexec /update vmmClient32Update.mspBOOTSTRAPPED=1


 


Cheers
