Hyper-V Integration Services en masse ;)

leave a comment »

Yes, we all „love” the way Microsoft gives us new stuff (like forced updates in Windows 10). As we usually know better what and when should be applied, let’s say it is time to upgrade our guest integration services to the latest version.
I usually  express strong conviction that HV integration services should be kept up to date, the thing most sysadmins disregards. Those tools are responsible for keeping your VMs in shape, maintain communication between them and host services, so they SHOULD be always updates. Of course, as with almost everything TEST it before applying on any important environment.
As on 2016-12-31, the latest HV Integration Services version is 6.3.9600.18398

Let’s say – we would like to upgrade all our Windows machines (those BEFORE Windows 10 and Windows 2016) . We can do it manually (not cool, not cool at all), semi-automatic (no reboot) or almost … magical way – fully automatic 😉

Let’s start we have proper source added to Chocolatey:

choco source add -n=public -s"https://www.myget.org/F/public-choco" --priority=10
  • semi automatic (RDP, psexec, powershell)
    choco install hvintegrationservices -y
  • fully automatic (with reboot) using The Foreman and win_manage

    win_manage:
        chocolatey_packages:
          hvintegrationservices:
            ensure: 6.3.9600.18398
        dsc_reboot:
          dsc_reboot:
            message: Machine requested a reboot
            when: pending

Hyper-V R2 – ciężki w zarządzaniu? Wcale nie…

Dowolny Windows 8, Windows Server (2008/2012/R2), RemoteDesktop, darmowe aplikacje 5Nine – to wszystko w porównaniu do kobyły ‚klienta’ VMware.

A kopiowanie plików za pomocą RemoteDesktop ?

# net use * \\tclient\mój_dysk
