Afternoon,

We currently have a KMS Server which is using VAMT version 2.0.67.0 to manage all of our licenses.

Did a bit of reading today and saw there is a version 3 of the VAMT tool. But will need to install Windows ADK to use it.

Well it just so happens that I am in the process of setting up a server to deploy our images using Microsoft Deployment (MDT) and one of the requirements is to install Windows ADK.

I see that one of the new features of VAMT 3 is the Active Directory Based Activation. I would prefer to continue to use my KMS Server for the activations and not use AD for this.

So my question is, if I install VAMT 3 will I have to use the AD based activation instead or can I continue using my KMS server?

Kindly advise.

Regards,
N

AD based activation is not mandatory to use any version of VAMT. 3.1 can still manage MAL and KMS.
