hello,

i'm using KMS host based client activation,i know that after 180 if an inactive activated client will be deactivated, the thing i need to know: can i force the deactivation before the 180 days ?? (to conserve licenses)

Thank you in advance.

Conserve what licenses?  You can activate unlimited hosts with KMS and it only keeps track of the last 50 activations.

KMS keeps track of activations, not licenses.

aleinss is correct. KMS does not keep track of the total number of activations. It stops counting at 50.
