How to Troubleshoot the Key Management Service (KMS)

As part of deployment, many enterprise customers set up the Key Management Service (KMS) to enable activation of Windows in their environment. It is a simple process to set up the KMS host…and the KMS clients discover and attempt to activate on their own. But what happens if it doesn't work? What do you do next? The most common issues seen by our customers (and how to resolve them) are outlined in the Volume Activation Operations Guide, under Volume Activation Troubleshooting. This blog will walk you through the resources you need to troubleshoot, while the information in the Guide st arts with the problem to be solved and the possible ways to fix it. The details of event log entries and the SLMGR.vbs script can be found in the Volume Activation Technical Reference Guide.
