There are many updates for SCVMM and Hyper-V. Some are required just following product install, others are provided to offer greater functionality. Some updates/hotfixes address issues that may constitute a headache for you down the road. I'll list everything I know and provide recommendations. This post will change over time as new updates and issues arise. If you find a hotfix or update that you think should be posted here, please let me know. Include the environment conditions (Windows version, etc) and what the update addresses. Here's to being proactive!
