I am hoping this is the correct forum on which to introduce my question as I am new to Ubuntu/linux world... and KVM Hypervisor.
I am looking at upgrading the current version of KVM virtualisation tool which we use to create a small number of VMs including our Vsphere 6.0 server so as it is independent of our ESX farm.
The upgrade is necessary to mitigate some recent security vulnerabilities.
I am wondering what companion apps I have to upgrade at the same time as I upgrade KVM? I'm thinking about the virt tools (virt-manager etc), virsh. Does QEMU need to be upgraded independently as well? Or does it get updated when KVM is installed.
Does anyone have a plan of what they did when they have recently upgraded KVM that thye could forward to me?
The underlying Server hardware is Cisco UCS C220m4 (Standalone) - Ubuntu 16.10 (see attachment)
Thanks in advance
