Procedures to update VMM hyper v Cluster to r2 sp1

Posted on 2011-04-26
Last Modified: 2013-11-06
I have seen a few procedures on Google but does anyone have a tested procedure that works for you.

I believe the following process could work:
1. Upgrade VMM to R2 sp1
2. Upgrade individual Cluster Host Nodes.

Should be fine.

    Hy AAron,

    for upgrading SCVMM 2008 to R2 please follow only Microsoft instructions. That is your best bet that everything will workout fine :) Here are steb-by-step detailed instructions on how to do the upgrade. As you wrote, first you upgrade to R2 then you upgrade individual hosts.

    Upgrading to VMM 2008 R2 from VMM 2008

    And then as you said, you do upgrade of individual nodes :
