Hyper V Server 2012 R2 validation says patches needed. Console says otherwise

Eric_Price asked
Last Modified: 2015-06-08
I have 3 Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 (the free version) servers in a cluster. The cluster has been running for almost a  year now, and has validated in the past.

Now though the validation wizard fails and tells me (among other things) that one or more of the machines needs a few updates.

Except that when I go to the console of those hosts and choose option 6 (Download and Install Updates) it comes back and tells me no updates are needed.

How do I fix this? Is there a way to reset the list of updates and have it run through the list and validate them all from scratch?
