Active Directory-Base Activation

We have just started using Active Directory-Base Activation.  I have installed the Volume Activation Services role on one DC.  I have not been able to find any information about installing the role on multiple DCs.  Can the role be installed on multiple DCs?  All DCs are 2012 R2.  The Schema level is 69.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is no purpose in installing the role on multiple servers. It won't hurt  but it won't help either.

Is there a way to install the Volume Activation Tools without installing the role?

Yes, Add roles and features, leave the role selection screen unchanged, go to the features screen, expand the remote administration tools, and check the volume activation tools checkbox.

AD activation service creates ad activation object in configuration container of ad domain controllers which then eventually gets replicated to all DC's
This is one time task you do with volume activation service role and once done, no need to install role again on another dcs
