Earlier this week we released the Hyper-V RC1 package to the connect.microsoft.com site.
What has been improved:
In addition to bug fixes and stability improvements we also made some additional changes largely based on feedback from customers
- Integration Components For Windows Server 2008 guest’s included in Integration Services Setup Disk
- New Graphics for Hyper-V Manager and Virtual Machine Connection – including a “Now” icon in the snapshot pane
- IPv4 Address Migration – when creating a new Virtual Network bound to an adapter with a static IPv4 address the IPv4 settings are migrated to the new virtual adapter
Here are the different updates:
This is the Hyper-V RC1 package for Windows Server 2008 x64. This package must be installed on Hyper-V server’s (physical machines).
This is the Hyper-V RC1 package for Windows Server 2008 x86. This package includes only the Hyper-V Management Components for Full Windows installs and the Hyper-V Integration Components for Server 2008 x86
Hyper-V Management For Windows Vista SP1 –KB949587
Note Updating to RC1 is a permanent operation. Once installed, it cannot be uninstalled. So you can’t got back to RC0 or Beta after installing RC1.
