KMS Server issue

Got a potential problem that I can't figure out. I have a KMS server in my environment that serves out licenses for Office and for Windows 7. We have a VMWare View environment for virtual desktops. I have one pool that has suddenly started asking for a reactivation of the license - which it should not - because of some driver change. It's not happening on my other desktop pools, so perhaps I just need to reactivate the master and that may solve that.

But when this started to happen, I initially thought something was wrong with the KMS server. I looked in DNS to make sure the DNS pointer to the KMS was there, that there was only one and that it pointed to the right place. That tuned out to be OK.

Then I went to the KMS server itself and ran the slmgr.vbs script with the /dli switch.  It is reporting all is OK for Windows, but I see no evidence that the Office license is even installed on the KMS server.  I know that it is/was as I did it myself some months ago and would have double-checked to make sure that I could see it and the counts go up as I added Office to my computers.   What would cause Office number not to appear on the server?

If you run this command, does it show anything?

cscript slmgr.vbs /dlv 2E28138A-847F-42BC-9752-61B03FFF33CD

This is for Office 2013.

Then it is configured for Office 2013 activation.
Do you see something like this?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yeah... any idea why I'm not seeing it when I just do the /dlv or /dli?  I'm pretty sure that's what I've done in the past... I've never executed the command you did with that number.

No, DLV doesn't show you that.

Look at this reference guide from MS.
To see all you must type the command like this:

cscript slmgr.vbs /dlv all

Duh... that's right, I forgot the "all" part of that command.

Thanx
