Hello Experts,
I have a Windows 2008 R2 64bit server running as my KMS server with a Windows 2008 R2 KMS key(Volume_KMS_R2_B channel).
It has been successfully activated since June 15 this year. It has been working fine up until a few days ago.
Now the client workstations cannot be activated see attached image with error.
Has Microsoft released some updates that may need to get this functioning again?

How many servers are using the KMS key?  You need at least 5 servers to use KMS, otherwise use MAK.

After further investigation on the server side from the event viewer for actual KMS events. I determined that there appears to be various workstations with duplicate CMID's as I had multiple event 12290.
The image built using was syspreped using sysyprep /generalize and deployed with ghost this should resolve this?
