KB978560: VMM 2008 R2 Rollup Package

This rollup package for VMM was released by Microsoft last night.  It is made available via Windows Update.  It contains a number of fixes:

Issue 1

Consider the following scenario:

  • A user is a member of the Self-Service User role.
  • A new virtual machine is created, and the user is assigned the owner of the virtual machine.

In this scenario, the user cannot connect to the virtual machine by using the Self-Service Portal.

Issue 2

Consider the following scenario:

  • A highly available virtual machine is offline.
  • Quick Storage Migration is used to move the offline virtual machine to another storage location that is in the cluster.

In this scenario, the virtual machine does not migrate to another node that is in the cluster by using Quick Migration or Live Migration after Quick Storage Migration is used.

Issue 3

VMware virtual machines are not listed in the Virtual Machine Manager console if there are duplicate custom named tags in VMware Virtual Center.

Issue 4

Consider the following scenario:

  • A new virtual machine is created, and the owner of the virtual machine is a member of the Self-Service User role.
  • While the create virtual machine job is running, a user is added or removed from the Self-Service User role.

In this scenario, the user is not added or removed from the Self-Service User role because the create virtual machine job is running.

This rollup also includes the resolutions that are documented in the following article for a Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 hotfix rollup package KB976244.

Thanks to fellow MVP Артём Александрович Проничкин for the heads up.
