KB: How to reassociate orphaned VMs with a service instance or VM role in VMM 2012 R2 Update Rollup 7


When you have Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager with Update Rollup 7 (VMM 2012 R2 UR7) or a later version in your VMM environment, you can now reassociate an orphaned virtual machine with its Service or VM role after the host server is recommissioned with VMM. This is helpful if Service or VM role VMs are orphaned during the host add or remove cycle. This is helpful also to implement Recovery and Backup scenarios for Services and VM roles.

For complete details and instructions on how to reassociate a VM, please see the following:
