Update Hyper-V Integration Services

I was recently on a Hyper-V host where a few of the VMs were saying the integration services required an update.

To update this, open up the VM through Hyper V manager, then click Action > Insert Integration Services Setup Disk.


Run the setup from within the VM

A message will show up saying that it's detected a previous version of the services and asks whether you'd like to upgrade it


Once you've clicked OK, it will give you a progress bar for the installation


Once finished installing, you will need to restart the VM


The final step is to simply eject the Integration Services from the VM


This process will need to be carried out on each VM you're running in your environment, if you notice it requires an Integration Services update.  Just note that because of the reboot, it will cause down-time.
