Microsoft release offline virtual machine servicing tool 2.1

Microsoft has released an update to its OVMST.

Microsoft has released an update to its OVMST. It’s really a support refresh that updates the utility to be compatible with all the R2 stuff that’s been coming out of MSFT’s door, together with support for Windows 7 etc.

In case you don’t know, OVMST handles how VMs get patched/services when they are offline, whether they are powered off or suspended. It saves admins from having to power on VMs and do the update manually.
