I am trying to install a Lync 2013 MAK key into a KMS host.  This is just Lync and not the entire office suite.  When i try and use the "Microsoft Office 2013 Volume License Pack" of course i get the "invalid key" error.  

Looking to see what the CLI phrase is or if there is a package to help activate this key; again, just Lync and not office.

MAKs don't work with KMS. If you want to install a new key for Lync, you can try using the Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT). It's a part of the Assessment and Deployment kit for Windows 8. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30652
If you have WIndows 7, you can try VAMT 2.0 (just search on google for that).
