microsoft KMS server activations through Cisco ASA5525
Posted on 2015-02-03
We had to secure our MS 2008 KMS server from the internet and implement a IPSEC policy for KMS office activations. This does not appear to be working, and was wondering if anyone had any luck putting a KMS server behind a Cisco ASA5525 9.1(5). have been able to see packets getting to and from the client, through the ASA and to the 2008 serve with acknowledgements from the server but no activations. Turn off IPSEC and presto, activations are working.
Possibly IPSEC is not the answer. Tried both with Kerberos and pre-shared key, same result.
