Hi Guys,

We are running HYPER-V 2008 R2 bare metal (based on server 2008 R2 core edition) in our environment. Our backup software requires we update it to Service pack 1 SP1.

I downloaded the ISO image from the website for the HYPER-V 2008 R2 as it doesn't seem to come with updates or is downloadable on its own. When I run setup.exe from the disk, it  prompts me with the screen in attached picture HYPER_V installation. is it ok to continue??

I am worried, so wanted to check if it is ok to proceed and it will not break any of my VMs installed on it. Needless to say I will have a backup, but dont want to be put in that situation.

IF someone had followed a procedure to upgrade HYPER-V 2008 R2 bare metal to SP1 and happy to share that would be great

If I remember correctly it's ok to continue, just make sure all your VM's are shutdown and not in saved state ... Also, it's possible you'll get a prerequisite message that tells you to uninstall the Hyper-V role, don't do that ... It's a "" bug"" ... more info: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957256

Woops, my bad... But the advice stays the same basically, shut down the VM's, make sure none are in save state ...

After the upgrade, which is pretty straightforward, I didn't come across any problems as far as I remember, make sure you also upgrade the integration components on the virtual clients.

Thanks, very much appreciate your help David. I guess that is the download I had to do initially and not HYPER-V SP1. All sorted now
