Update Rollup 9 for System Center 2012 R2 is Now Available #SysCtr #SystemCenter #SCVMM

Hello folks,

I am glad to share with you that Microsoft just released Update Rollup 9 for System Center 2012 R2.

Please find the description of each component that are updated/fixed in System Center 2012 R2 UR9 and the new features added in Virtual Machine Manager particularly:

Virtual Machine Manager (KB3129784):

SCVMM-UR9-Update
Enable Dynamic VLAN on the vNIC of a VM With VMM 2012 R2 UR9, you can now enable Dynamic VLANs on the vNICs of a VM. By enabling this parameter on the Logical Network, all the vNICs that are connected to the VM Network on top of the said logical network can have custom VLANs that differ from the ones initially assigned by VMM.  A new PowerShell parameter, AllowDynamicVlanOnVnic, has been introduced to enable Dynamic VLANs on VLAN based Logical Networks. The parameter can be set either during the creation of a new Logical Network or during modification of existing Logical networks.

Sample Usage:

1. Enabling Dynamic VLAN while creating a new Logical Network

2. Enabling Dynamic VLAN for existing VLAN based Logical Network

3. Disabling Dynamic VLAN for existing VLAN based Logical Network

Note: By default –AllowDynamicVlanOnVnic is set to false

Please note that this feature can only be leveraged with CISCO ACI in order to support micro segmentation.
