Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Virtual Machine Manager

When a resource is updated in System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) and it is referenced by a service template, you must copy and update the service template so that it uses the updated resource.

Use the following procedure to update a service template when one of its dependent resources has been updated.

To update a service template to use an updated resource

  1. In the VMM console, open the Library workspace, expand the Templates node, and then click Service Templates.

  2. In the Templates pane that lists the available service templates, locate the service template that you want to update.

    Service templates referencing outdated resources display “Outdated” in the Update Status column.

  3. Confirm the dependent resources that need updating by right-clicking the service template and then selecting View Updated Resources.

    noteNote
    This option is unavailable if dependent resources have not been updated.

    The View Updated Resources dialog box opens and displays the most recent version of resources used by this service template.

  4. In the Templates pane of the Library workspace, right-click the service template that you want to update, and then select Copy and Update.

    noteNote
    This option is unavailable if dependent resources have not been updated.

    A copy of the current service template is created and the outdated resource is replaced with the most recent release from the same family.

  5. Publish the updated service template and then apply the updated template to the deployed service. For instructions, see How to Apply Updates to a Deployed Service in VMM.
