KMS question (Mistakenly activated multiple KMS servers)

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I recently made the mistake of activating 3 of my domain controllers with my KMS key.  After I realized this, I ran the slmgr -upk and slmgr -rearm command on the two that I wanted to activate with the KMS server instead, and this worked fine.

However, now both of these servers warn that this copy of Windows is not genuine, and do not seem to be making any attempt to contact my KMS server.  Is there a command to issue an activation request?
