VMMUpdate – How to (automatically) check for available updates for SCVMM, Hyper-V and Failover Cluster?

Jonathan Jordan (Support Escalation Engineer) has released an really helpful tool to check the patch status for your SCVMM, Hyper-V and Failover Cluster environments. 

The solution here is called VMMUpdate!

VMMUpdate creates a report of required updates for technologies used by the SCVMM server and all Hosts.

– Windows
– Hyper-V
– Failover Cluster

As well as components SCVMM and other technologies leverage…

– WinRM
– BITS
– WMI
– VDS
– VSS

After extract you can start the script with “VMMUpdatev2.4.cmd” and when scan is completed you receive an textfile with all relevant information’s:

These logfiles are saved in C:\Windows\SCVMM\vmmupdate\logs

      did you had started the script with an elevated command prompt? this works really flawless for me in different environments.

      – Open an elevated command prompt
      – Start the script with ‘VMMUpdatev1.x.cmd /debug’
      – Email all console output along with problem description to vmmupdate@live.com

      Hope that helps.
