This post describes the Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2008 R2 issues that are resolved in the hotfix rollup package that was released on February 8, 2011.

"SCVMM Rollups are cumulative, so install this latest update whether or not you have installed prior rollups. The number of issues resolved makes each of these updates vital to maintaining a healthy SCVMM environment.

By stopping the "Virtual Machine Manager" and "Virtual Machine Manager Agent" services on the SCVMM server prior to install, a server restart should not be required. Although this update is available on Windows Update, it's strongly recommended that a manual download and install be performed. This's to guarantee installation in the event that your corporate WSUS server doesn't provide the update, or only the most recommended updates are installed."

Keep in mind that to perform a manual install you must open an elevated command prompt and type the command below, substituting the correct version of package name. This is explained in the associated article.

msiexec /update PackageName.msp BOOTSTRAPPED=1
