Hello everyone,

I’m happy to share with you that Microsoft just released the first update rollup in 2019 for System Center 2016, Update Rollup 7 (UR7).

You will find each component that has been fixed in System Center 2016 UR7, including bugs that have been fixed in System Center 2016 Virtual Machine Manager and System Center 2016 Data Protection Manager.

The System Center 2016 components that are fixed in Update Rollup 7 are as follows:

Virtual machine management (KB4496920 and KB4496921):

You can obtain and install the update package at Windows Update directly, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS)or you can go to the following websites and download the update packages manually Microsoft Update list:

The issues that are fixed in this update are as follows:

  • The VMM does not respect the static IP address when creating a cluster.
  • The status of the virtual machine is incorrectly displayed as “Transfer failed” when the virtual machine with the partition disk has migrated due to dynamic optimization.
  • The VMM console crashes when listing Hyper-V host features when all of the following conditions are true:
    • The user is part of a non-administrator user role
    • The user does NOT belong to the host group of all hosts.
  • VM cloning fails when a VMM self-service user or a tenant administrator user attempts to clone a virtual machine with a connected virtual machine.
  • Upgrading a cluster and changing the properties of a logical network configuration takes longer.
  • Adding VMSubnet to a BGP-enabled VMNetwork fails with the error ‘The web service extension does not implement the requested interface IBGPManagementAPI’.
  • The VMM console crashes during the enumeration of Hyper-V features when the uplink port profile configuration is incorrect after removing and adding the host to the VMM.
  • Performance counters for virtual machines that use Hyper-V replication do not display correctly when the virtual machines fail.
  • Virtual machine transitions between cluster hosts are also detected when dynamic optimization is disabled because Windows Server ‘Failover Cluster VM Load Balancing is not disabled.
  • The VMware VMware service running vCenter 6.5 managed by VMM has not been migrated to another host in the cluster.
  • Transferring a virtual machine to a host with a different processor version is blocked even if the Allow transfer to a virtual machine host with a different processor version option is selected.

After you download and install Update Rollup 7, VMM 2016 will be upgraded to: 4.0.2548.0 as well as the managed agent version Hyper-V host.

The following PowerShell script will help you automate the VMM agent update for everyone Hyper-V hosts.

}
