The Service Pack is just applied to the Host not the VM's.

Prior to running the Service Pack if you have the space on another server I would recommend shutting down the VM's and backing them up just in case something happens to go wrong. I only say this because it is an M$ product and we all know THINGS do happen.

I felt that i asked a clear question.  I think the question was not answered fully.  I think there is more to do with my question then what was told.  I responded for clarification and i did not get a resonse back.
