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

Hi Dave,
The article you sent is about upgrading 2008 to 2008 R2 whereas I am upgrading 2008 R2 to 2008 R2 SP1??

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
