KMS vs. MAK activation for Windows Server 2008
Posted on 2009-05-13
I'm getting concerned that all of a sudden some of my Server 2008 servers will become not activated anymore. I get this event ID: 12293 Source: Security-licensing-SLC in the event log every day or so. I feel like I get more confused every time I read about differences between KMS and MAK.
Right now all my 2008 servers were activated using KMS. The 2008 domain controllers are the only ones that are getting successfully published in DNS.
Am I okay? Or do I have to do further configuration? Should I disable DNS publishing for KMS on the non-DC servers?
