KMS License server

Hi

I have recently inherited a Domain which is using a 2008R2 KMS server for licensing its Microsoft estate however on investigation I don't think all of the servers are using this license method. It would appear as thought half of the servers are using MAK licensing and the other half are using the KMS server.

Is there an easy way to generate a report from KMS that tells me exactly what products and servers have checked in for licensing ? I'd like to be able to pick up all the MAK licensed servers and standardize on a single method.  

regards

Not easily, but if you use the VAMT dashboard, *that* can query every server and tell you if it has a MAK key, Generic key (for KMS) and its current status (activated, in grace period, etc.) Should be everything you want.
