      The white paper in this download provides prescriptive guidance for using the script samples included to integrate System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and Virtual Machine Manager 2007 to set up an automated process for applying software updates to virtual machines stored offline in a VMM library. By automating the process of enumerating stored virtual machines and deploying the virtual machines to a maintenance host to apply updates, the IT Administrator can manage virtual machines with the same effort as managing physical machines.
      Note: A separate tool is currently under development to further automate the process of updating offline virtual machines. For more information about the Offline Virtual Machine Servicing Tool, go here http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=110333.
