I know the question may sound dumb.  But I keep trying to figure out how to move a template from the library server (Hyper-V R2 SP1) to an host in order the modify the template (to install  SP1 for Windows 2008 R2)  then move it back in the library server as a template.  I know how to move it back but not the other way around.

Thanks

You can't move a template from library to host "as a template". You can right click it and then chose deploy VM from template. In your case you would have to deploy a VM from template and then update the VM with SP1 and then make the template out of that VM.

Hope that helps.

Shahid

I'm working with SCVMM.  I can't select an option such as "deploy VM from template" when I right click on the template.  I had to do it from Hosts, selecting "New Virtual Machine" and "Use an existing virtual machine, template or VHD".  

Thanks

I think it can be done as Shahid said from another release of Hyper-V but from Hyper-V R2 the only way to do it is as how I explained it.
