  • Applies to:
  • Virtuozzo 6.0
  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 6.0
  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.6

Symptoms

It is not possible to install Windows Updates after c2v migration of a container from Windows node.

Cause

All Windows Updates settings are disabled for containers on Virtuozzo containers server by design.

Automatic Windows Updates settings fix after c2v migration was implemented in Virtuozzo containers for Windows 6.0 update 22 and Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.6 update 85.

Resolution

Install pending updates on the source server and reboot it.

For containers, which have already been migrated to virtual machines, it is possible to enable Windows Updates functionality manually. After migration run the following commands in the resulting virtual machine:

For Windows 2008 and 2008 R2 :

reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv" /v Start /t REG_DWORD /d 0x02 /f      
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate" /v WUServer /t REG_SZ /d "http://update.microsoft.com" /f      
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate" /v WUStatusServer /t REG_SZ /d "http://update.microsoft.com" /f        
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v UseWUServer /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00 /f      
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v NoAutoUpdate /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00 /f     
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v AUOptions /t REG_DWORD /d 0x03 /f        
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v ScheduledInstallDay /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00 /f      
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v ScheduledInstallTime /t REG_DWORD /d 0x017 /f

For Windows 2003 :

reg add "HKLM\vz%VPSID%\MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv" /v Start /t REG_DWORD /d 0x02 /f
reg add "HKLM\vz%VPSID%\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v NoAutoUpdate /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00 /f
