hyper-v 2012 - host machine - microsoft updates
Posted on 2014-09-22
I have a machine running Windows 2012 R2 and Hyper-V. It’s a host machine with one guest VM. I need to run MS updates automatically on the host. I’d like to schedule the updates to run on a specific day of the week at 4 am. Server 2012 R2 doesn’t let you choose a specific day to run updates, so I created a scheduled task to run weekly at a specific time. My question is: What about the Guest VM, how will it shut down? Will it shut down gracefully and then restart after the host’s updates are applied?
Thanks in advance for your input.
