Hyper-V 2016 Virtual Machine Versions

I had a job to upgrade some VM hardware versions today. all the Hyper-V nodes in the cluster are 2016.

I've upgraded the cluster version from 8 to 9 (that didn't cure my problem).

The highest Host Hardware version available is version 5 (server 2012) Why can't I see version 8?

Im running Get-VMHostSupportedVersion I only see version 5 (set to default)?

Whats been missed, why no version 8

update - all the other notes are correct (in the cluster - I have two clusters)

It seems the problem only resents on the nodes in the cluster I raised the cluster functional level on (strange?)

I would guess that the cluster upgrade is not complete.     can you detail the steps you carried out to upgrade the cluster, perhaps something has been missed, or the steps just need to be retried.
