Hi,

We use windows 2012 KMS Server which was activating our office 2010s and windows7 . Recently we were due to renew  our volume licensing and we renewed and Microsoft has given us  new KMS key for office and windows 7 Computers.

Firstly I am not sure as how to activate the new KMS key for office 2010 and Windows 7.

Secondly to find my KMS server I ran the following command on one of the windows7 PC

 nslookup -type=srv _vlmcs._tcp >%temp%\kms.txt

and on the notepad I got this, so please tell me which is my KMS server and where and how I need to activate the new KMS keys.

Server:  ServerA-001.domain.local
Address:  192.168.108.210

_vlmcs._tcp.domain.local      SRV service location:
        priority       = 0
        weight         = 0
        port           = 1688
        svr hostname   = fhs-adc-002.domain.local
ServerB-002.domain.local      internet address = 192.168.108.211


Thanks

It looks like your KMS server is fhs-adc-002.domain.local. I'm not sure why the response included ServerB-002.domain.local, unless fhs-adc-002 is an alias (CNAME) for ServerB-002.

To activate the new key, open an elevated command prompt on the KMS server and run the following commands:

smlgr.vbs /upk   (removes the existing key)
slmgr.vbs /ipk <new_key>   (installs the new key)
slmgr.vbs /ato   (activates the installed key)

You can verify that it's correctly installed and activated with the slmgr.vbs /dlv command.
