You can use the built-in baselines if you want. Edit the baseline and here you can add/remove updates.
In my example, I will create a new one:
Type the name of your baseline:
Now select updates you want to apply. Here, my Hyper-V host OS is Windows Server 2016:
Next, you can select the assignment scope. On which Hyper-V hosts the baseline will be applied:
Click Next. Note the « View Script » button which is for PowerShell Addict! VMM gives you the PowerShell code to perform this task using PowerShell.
Click finish to create the baseline.
Hyper-V Host Compliance
Your baseline is ready. Now let’s examine the Host’s compliance.
Navigate to: Fabric -> All Hosts and select your host.
Here, we can see the new baseline previously created in « Unknown » state because no scan have been performed yet. Right click on your host and select « Scan« .
After scanning my host, VMM indicates « Non compliant« .
Now, right click on the Hyper-V and select « Remediate »
In the new dialog box, click « Remediate » to patch the host.
