I have a 2008 R2 SP1 server running my KMS. The VAMT is at v 2.0. How do I go about upgrading the VAMT to 3.0 or 3.1.

We're getting KMS keys for server 2012, Office 2013 and Win 7.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the response. I did read that tech article. But I want to do an in-place upgrade, not create a new server and migrate.

Any ideas?

You can install a hotfix which will allow you to add the Windows 8 and Server 2012 keys.

That Office 13 worked great!

Now this morning, I received a "request" for the VAMT to authenticate Win 7 via KMS. I've tried adding the KMS key, but I don't see it as a product showing up om VAMT.

VAMT now shows:
Ofice2010
Office 15 (2013)
Windows Server(R) server Standard edition, which activates all of my 2008 standard and R2 installations.

The Windows 7, I have to go to Product Keys, open the saved file, and there I see the CSVLK for Windows 7.

I think I need to get Win 7 loaded as a product key now?

Thanks for everything so far.

You should just load your Windows 7 KMS key in the same way as your Server keys.
