Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You don't need to uninstall integration service
Integration service is installed automatically when you deployed 2012, 2008 R2, win7, win 8  guest VMs
Only the thing it is not visible in add remove programs.
In case of windows 2003 and XP you might need to install integration service.

Thanks

If you try to upgrade integration service , it will just reinstall existing package unless you install any updated integration package on host server.
I suggest you to upgrade integration service only if you got its upgrade package from MS to deploy in host server repository..

The Host is upgraded to 2012 R2, so its trying to upgrade the Guest, but the error happens.

Do you have an anti-virus on the vm? Try stopping it if that’s the case.
Could you go in the Event Log of the VM and search for other errors or more information about this one.

As workaround you could upgrade the VM to 2012 R2 as well. That will fix the Integration services issue.

Yes you can try to upgrade VM to Generation 2 VM for Hyper-v 2012 R2 in that case as you are running 2012 in guest OS

It should work

may be you can try to create new Generation 2 VM and then add 2012 guest VM HDD there so that it might get upgraded automatically

I have not tried, but you can give try please...

This worked, upgrading to R2 was the only way to get the new R2 Hyper-V integrations Services to work.
