Hyper-V RC1: Here we go...

Improvements Over Hyper-V RC0

In addition to bug fixes and stability improvements, Microsoft 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 icons/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

Windows Server 2008 x64 Hyper-V RC1 Update - KB950049
This is the Hyper-V RC1 package for Windows Server 2008 x64. This package must be installed on Hyper-V server’s (physical machines).  It includes the Hyper-V Server components for Full and Core installs, the Hyper-V Integration Components for Server 2008 x64 (see note below for RC1 improvements over RC0) and the Hyper-V Management Components for Full Windows installs.
NOTE: This package is permanent.  Once installed, it cannot be uninstalled.  So you can’t got back to RC0 or Beta after installing RC1.

Windows Server 2008 x86 Hyper-V RC1 Update – KB950049
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 (see note below for RC1 improvements over RC0)
It does not contain the Hyper-V Server components, Hyper-V is x64 only!!
NOTE: This package is permanent.  Once installed, it cannot be uninstalled.  So you can’t got back to RC0 or Beta after installing RC1.
