We have need for a temporary legacy setup here at the shop.
We used a Windows Server 2000 Standard SP2 CD ISO to install the base OS.
We have an ISO based DVD with every conceivable Microsoft service pack and needed critical update on it that we use to service our VMs. We needed to mount that ISO and update to Service Pack 4 before we could get the Hyper-V Integration Services installed.
Once we had the Integration Services installed, we were able to configure the new VM on our SBS network.
After a few minutes, we saw this:
Windows 2000 Server with 72 Updates Waiting
WSUS picked up on all of the needed updates and the downloads began!
One of the updates in that list was Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 and known issues (KB891861). In the description for the Rollup, it was indicated that the update was a pre-package of previous Windows 2000 updates.
So, we ran the Rollup first to see what was left over. It turns out that there were still 68 updates waiting for us after what was an extended reboot and subsequent logon procedure.
Note that the logon procedure took quite a bit of time after the Rollup was applied so there will be a need to be patient.
When the new Win2K VM was connected to the domain and its needed services and LoB (Line of Business) applications were installed, the VM ran flawlessly.
