Processing windows updates using powershell on Hyper-V machine running on 2012 r2

Need help manually processing windows updates on a 2012 r2 server. The 2012 r2 side updates okay but the Hyper-V machine never finds any updates to process. Last update to process where in 2015.

Can you perhaps explain a bit differently? What do you mean by "the 2012 R2 side."  What is and isn't updating? The host? One of the guests? Your terminology leaves it all a bit ambiguous.

I have a HP G8 server running a 2012r2 Domain Controller on the physical side and one VM running SQL 2014. The DC side updates just fine but the VM says it checking but never stops checking, like it's in a loop. Once before in 2015 I had a tech come in and he used a power shell command to manually download and process the updates.

Here is a bit of the windowsupdate log.

Running Hyper-v on a DC wreaks havoc with the networking stack. It's not supported and is unpredictable to manage. I can't even begin to speculate what all the problems might be.

Hi,

I hope this setup is in a lab and not in a business environment. Either way you need to split the roles: DC x1 with NOTHING else installed (no IIS, no WSUS) - then a second machine as your Hyper- V host. OR just one server with a guest DC and other VMs doing whatever else you want.

I have a RDP server and the DC / Hyperv server. We run a small accounting database with about 11GB of data. We don't use the DC as a file or print server. I setup a linux server to handle login, printing, IM, email, files and etc. I've never had an issue except processing the updates on the VM. The update process worked fine last time using the powershell command but I was looking over the shoulder of another tech and didn't see the whole process. So I was asking to see if someone could guide me to the right article or process.

I got the updates loaded last night and all is good. I had to use the WSUS offline method.

I just bought a third server, HP G10, I'm installing VMWare to run three small VMs. I'll take your recommendation and move the VM off the DC.

Thanks everyone.
