1 domain, multiple DC. Can you install multiple KMS servers? Each server having duplicate the same serials attached or maybe certain KMS may not have all.

waste of time how? My main KMS server is not running 2008 R2, just 2008, and MS has not fixed the ability install KMS on that server, but it had a previous one running on it, just won't support the new version. So my only option is to install that elsewhere.

Each kms server requires 25 clients or 5 servers requests before it starts sending out activations.  You can always use a Windows 7 client in a machine to be a kms server
