"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
Throughout this thread almost all answers have been made available, but I may be able to clear everything up. I am going to assume you are only using Server 2008, Server 2008R2, Windows 7, and Windows Vista.
-Only one KMS host is neccessary
-A Server 2008 R2 KMS host with a KMS B key will be able to activate all of the machines in your environment. (You receive this from the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center)
-Once you have used slmgr.vbs -ipk <Server 2008R2 STD/ENT KMS B Key> (to install the key) + slmgr.vbs -ato (to activate the KMS host) you will now see a server count and client count when you type slmgr.vbs -dlv.
Hopefully someone eventually will read this thread tryng to install Office and Windows KMS keys like me. In short - yes you can have two KMS keys on a single server. One for Windows and one for Office. Windows key installation is well covered here and there. To install an Office 2010 key after that you must download this package http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=25095 and install it on your KMS server. It will ask for Office 2010 KMS key, and activate it online. To check your Office 2010 activation status enter "slmgr.vbs /dlv bfe7a195-4f8f-4f0b-a622-cf13c7d16864" in command prompt.
You can probably install Office 2013 KMS key the same way, you'll need Office 2013 pack http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35584. You can check Office 2013 using this command "slmgr.vbs /dlv 2E28138A-847F-42BC-9752-61B03FFF33CD"
