Hyper-V integration components update for Windows virtual machines that are running on a Windows 10-based host

This article describes an update for the latest integrated components for Windows virtual machines (VMs) that are running on a Windows 10-based or Windows Server 2016-based host, or a Windows Server 2012 R2-based host. This update is available on Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based Hyper-V guest. Before you install this update, check out the Prerequisites section.
Issues fixed in this update
Issue 1

Consider the following scenario:
  • You connect a VM to a virtual switch that uses a physical adapter.
  • You enable the single-root I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) option in Virtual Switch Manager.
  • You disable the physical adapter on the Hyper-V guest while network I/O is running on the VM.
In this scenario, the VM crashes.

Issue 2

The current Write Ahead Logging (WAL) implementation incorrectly assumes that the Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) ownership never changes. However, the ownership does change in multiple VM group replication in a shared VHD scenario.
