KMS issues - Count not increasing
Posted on 2012-08-20
I have setup a KMS host on a Windows 7 VM and given it a KMS key.
It has registered with DNS successfully and is able to update it's own records.
I have allowed TCP 1688 traffic into the box, and DCOM for WMI in and out.
Clients have DCOM for WMI allowed
I installed VAMT on the KMS host to view the activations, but have run into a problem - Nothing is being activated:
Clients (and VAMT) shows the following error:
0xC004F038 - The Software Licensing Service reported that the computer could not be activated. The count reported by your Key Management Service (KMS) is insufficient. Please contact your system administrator.
I understand that I have to have 25 clients on the network (Windows 7) to count unto 25 activations. Once this is reached, the clients will be activated?
slmgr.vbs /dli shows
Windows 7 - Licensed
Key Management is enabled on this machine
Current count: 3
Listening on Port: 1688
DNS publishing enabled

Key Management Service cumulative requests received from clients

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
