Winver is not showing Service pack information after applying SP1 or SP2 for HPC Edition 2008 / R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are trying to install Service Pack 1 for HPC Edition 2008 R2, it gets installed sucesfully, but after a reboot it will not show the service pack information in Winver. The same applies to SP2 as well.

    On HPC 2008 also after SP2 install, it's not showing SP2 info in Winver.

    Could you please help me how can we fix this?

  • Hello,

    Winver shows the version number of the operating system.  To determine the current service pack level on a HPC node you can go to HPC Cluster Manager click on Help, About. 

    HPC Pack 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 -> 3.1.3267

    HPC Pack 2008 R2 Service Pack 2 -> 3.2.3716

    HPC Pack 2008 R2 Service Pack 3 -> 3.3.3950

    HPC Pack 2008 R2 Service Pack 4 -> 3.4.4169

  • Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for your explanation. Could you please clarify below?

    1. If it's not a Cluster, take it as a standalone server, how can i get the HPC pack information?

    2. Winver shows OS version number, if i want to update OS windows 2008 HPC SP1 to SP2 how i need to do?

    We have three windows 2008 HPC SP1 servers running as a cluster, we need to upgrade OS service pack from Windows 2008 HPC Sp1 to SP2. could you please provide the steps to do this?

    We have Windows 2008 R2 HPC Edition. This is standalone server, not in the cluster.

    I cannot find service pack 1 in the list of updates.

    How to install service pack 1 and service pack 2 on that type of installation?

    In fact I want dynamic memory allocation for virtual machines in HyperV - maybe I could obtain that without service pack 2?

    Sunil! Could you please at least help me with service pack 1?

    Thanks in advance

  • What is winver saying? Are the service packs showing up in the Add/Remove Programs list?

  • After I've installed 126 updates I've got (within 3 days) another update and SP1 in the list.

    I will keep this thread updated after installing SP1

  • Done,

    After installing SP1 no SP2 is available.

    But dynamic memory setting in HyperV Manager has appear.

    I'm happy. Thanks everyone.
