kms server and server 2008 r2
Posted on 2010-09-19
Ok have run all the required commands etc for a kms server. It has activated 3 out of 3 servers.
It will not activate my windows 7 pro laptops (been on the system for neer on 30 days now)
If I run this command net stop slsvc i get the service is invalid (is this service installed on server 2008 R2 , the software licensing service that is, as i cannot see it in the services either)
This is what logs i get from the key management event viewer
An activation request has been processed.
there are 40 laptops in total. I have tried to run this command from a client
But basically it says the count recorded from the key management server says there are not enough clients
Anyone got any ideas as to why they possibly are not activating?? they are all on mostly during the day.
Just for further info firewall not on.
I assumed i did not have to install windows 7 with a product key?? but it would pick it up from the kms server and activate the product is this correct?? or it did not ask me for a key when i installed win 7 at least anyway.
