Improvements Over Hyper-V RC0
In addition to bug fixes and stability improvements we also made some additional changes largely based on feedback from customers, I might have missed a few I’ll add to this list if so…
*Integration Components For Windows Server 2008 guest’s included in Integration Services Setup Disk
*New 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


Update for Windows Vista (KB949587)
Install this update to enable remote management of a Windows Server 2008 computer running the Hyper-V RC1 role.

Update for Windows Server 2008 x64 Edition (KB950049)
The Release Candidate 1 (RC1) update to the Hyper-V role provides improvements to security, stability, performance, user experience, forward compatibility of configurations, and the programming model.

Update for Windows Vista for x64-based Systems (KB949587)

Install this update to enable remote management of a Windows Server 2008 computer running the Hyper-V RC1 role.

Hyper-V RC1 is an optional upgrade for customers and partners, providing the latest code for those who want to continue testing the technology within their infrastructure environment. The current beta of System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 (SCVMM) is not compatible with Hyper-V RC1. Customers who are simultaneously testing the recently-released SCVMM 2008 Beta should continue evaluating it with Hyper-V RC0. For customers who need to evaluate support for Windows Server 2000 as a guest operating system, we recommend upgrading to RC1, but not manage those systems with SCVMM 2008 Beta. Because Hyper-V and SCVMM 2008 are on separate development schedules, an update for SCVMM 2008 Beta to enable support for Hyper-V RC1 will be made available at a later date. While Hyper-V RC1 is feature complete, RC1 includes the following added support and functionality: Additional Guest OS support: Hyper-V RC1 adds guest operating system support for Windows 2000 Server SP4 (1-way, emulated only) and Windows 2000 Advanced Server with Service Pack 4 (1-way, emulated only). Simplified install for Windows Server 2008 ICs: With RC1, Hyper-V provides a simplified and consistent process to install the integration components for Windows Server 2008 guests.

Mouse integration support for Linux Integration components: Integration components for supported Novell SUSE 10 Linux operating systems will also include mouse integration support, released simultaneously with Hyper-V RC1. The integration components can be downloaded from In addition to the several RDP and TAP customers who have deployed Hyper-V into full production, both MSDN and TechNet have been successfully running on Hyper-V for several weeks. For more information on Microsoft’s deployment and results with Hyper-V, check out Rob Emanuel’s guest blog on the Windows Virtualization Team blog.
