Restart hyper v host cluster for patching RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I need to apply a patch to my hyper v environment. It's a 4 host cluster using storage spaces direct. I have around 200 VMs running in the cluster that provides a VDI environment using RDS. I need to apply a patch to all my hosts and restart the hosts. Please can you suggest what would be the safest way to apply the patch and restart the hosts.

    Should I shutdown all the VM's place the hosts in maintance mode and then restart. My VMM is currently broken and is not able to migrate the VMs between the host. 

    Thanks for your suggestions in advance
