Installing SCVMM 2012 R2 UR1

We got the UR1 released few weeks back. However, I see that most of our Experts give a warning – wait for some time before updating.

Whatever be the case, I did the upgrade on my VMM today. It was smooth.

The only difference this time is the script which needs be executed against the VMM database.

Few points to note.

The update will exit silently after the installation. We will not see any confirmation or message  once the update is completed.

However, the event-logs will help us here. Check for event id 1022.

Similarly, we need to check for event 1022 once the UR1 is installed for the console.

And finally, we need to execute the script to update the VMM DB.

 

From SQL Server Management Studio – Navigate to the VMMManagerDB Database. Click on New query and paste the code from the KB. Click on !Execute. We are done.

We can check the update status through Powershell. Without RU1, the product version is 3.2.7510.0 and with RU1, product version is 3.2.7620.0.

Once the VMM Server and console is updated, All the hosts needs an update on VMM Agent. From SCVMM Console, right click on the host and select “Update Agent” .
