trouble with Windows 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows 10 host with Hyper-V role installed and 2 vm, one Ubuntu and one Windows 2012 R2.

    Ubuntu works very well but Windows 2012 drives me crazy. If I reboot the VM after updates I cannot connect via Hyper-V manager because "ctrl+alt+del" or "crtl+alt+end" doesn't work! Also the RDP refuse to connect me to the vm. Windows 2012 vm is young, with basic installation and updates.

    It's really annoying!!!!

  • Did you update the Integration Components in the 2012 R2 VM after you finished installing it?

  • If I reboot the VM after updates I cannot connect...
    Someone else in another thread was talking about how the VM displays the CTRL+ALT+DEL prompt but is actually still installing updates and won't accept input. I have witnessed what I believe to be similar behavior in my lab environment although I never gave it much thought because my lab machines aren't exactly speed demons. Have you tried just waiting it out?

  • I think it's the same because I force the reboot of the VM while displaying "press CTRL..etc." and at startup the Windows Update restart to install the updates.... very strange!!!!

  • Hi FabPell,

    >> I force the reboot of the VM while displaying "press CTRL..etc."  and at startup the Windows Update restart to install the updates

    The update process was stopped unexpectedly. And it would recover the process after it boots.

    >>If I reboot the VM after updates I cannot connect via Hyper-V manager because "ctrl+alt+del" or "crtl+alt+end" doesn't work!

    I suppose the VM could not be connected when installing updates. When we are installing updates on physical client, we could not use the system neither.

    Best Regards,

    Leo
