How to check and update Hyper-V Virtual Machine Integration Services


Article Summary: This article provides information on how to check and update Hyper-V Virtual Machine Integration Services.

Integration Services is like the "Drivers and Firmware" for your Virtual Machines. If you have moved your Virtual Hard Disks (VHD) to another version of Hyper-V, you can almost always notice the performance degradation in the virtual machines. This difference is not always perceptible, but may often times lead to problems down the road. Fortunately, you can always check integration services and determine if an update is needed.

The Script is called CheckISCOnNodesOfHyperVCluster.PS1 and can be found and used at the link above.

To check a single Virtual Machine, perform the following steps:

  1. Right-click the Virtual Machine and click Connect.
  2. In the Virtual Machine window, click the Action Menu choice at the top and select Insert Integration Services Setup Disk.
  3. At this point you will receive a message if an update is needed. You can also manually run the setup as this actions mounts an ISO file as a virtual CD.
