Snapmanager for Hyper-V fails because KB not applicable

Hi,

I'm trying on a fresh and complete Windows-Updated Server 2008 R2 SP1 install Snapmanager for Hyper-V but its

missing the KB2263829. I'm not able to install the Microsoft Hotfix because its not applicable and the Version of the mentioned files

are newer as in the KB Articel. Probleme Snap-Manager for Hyper-V checks hardly of the KB2263829 but its obsolete due some newer/other updates.

How I manage to get Snapmanager installed?

Info: Version of hvax64.exe: 6.1.7601.17939

PS: Also tried quickly with the new 1.2 beta, same issue....

Cheers

Oliver

Hi

Just checked in my notes. I've already have that update installed before installing snap manager (get it from my WSUS). I've need to install 4 other updates but mentioned one was already installed on 2008 R2 SP1.

Did you check download page for update http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26785 ?

Hi,

Thats the point I cannot install the Update mentioned in your link, because its not applicable for my System. It looks like that my System is due another Update already ready, but Snapmanager exactly checks for KB2263829.

I did another installation 1 Year ago and I did not have this problem.

Re: Snapmanager for Hyper-V fails because KB not applicable

I have exactly the same problem. I cannot install KB2263829, because it is not applicable to my System 2008R2 SP1 standard with Hyper-V.

Do you have Hyper-V role installed?

"to my System 2008R2 SP1 standard with Hyper-V"

Re: Snapmanager for Hyper-V fails because KB not applicable

Yes, Hyper-V Role is installed. Now I have opened Case No. 2003534660.

Re: Snapmanager for Hyper-V fails because KB not applicable

Ok and Hi guys,

I started that threat, in the meantime I had already opened a Case @ Netapp, and they was telling me its a Microsoft issue, since i could not install a hotfix, quite fair...

Meanwhile I did also open a Ticket @ Microsoft about the same issue:

Fact is: Snapmanager checks Hardcoded of a KB-Hotfix Number which is meanwhile obsolete and take over by other hotfixes.

Microsoft could give me some "special unpacked" version of the needed KB-Hotfix to kind of cheat the Snapmanager installation that is the needed KB-Hotfix installed....so i manged to run Setup for SMHY.

(Now have wierd problem to get Clusterquorum to get work after this "hack" to get Snapmanager Setup working) - thats why I wont present that Microsoft special hotfix as a Solution, yet.

my Case @ netapp: No. 2003527250

I should get more information tomorrow, keep ya informed.

Well … on Solaris obsolete patch is still present in installed patch database. Even for new releases which integrate all previous patches (analog of slipstream Windows installation) information about applied patches is present. Is there anything similar on Windows?
