windows 7 enterprise activation (kms) trying to reactivate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created a golden image, and activated 1 of 50 (KMS licenses) created a link-clone, from the golden image and now the images are trying to activate again, tells me I have 3 days to activate windows activate now, but these are non-persistent vmware images that get blown away each and every time they are logged into, only have 2 active and only allow MIS access them and there are only 2 of them at a time, was going to publish these for 39 doctors but still having this re-licensing issue, what do I need to do to get this working.

  • I'm not sure I understand completely what you're trying to do.  Are you expecting to be able to activate once and then create multiple linked machines from the one activation?  I'm afraid it doesn't work that way.  Each of those machines for those doctors needs to be activated, and so each will be using a license.

  • Every linked clone gets a unique mac address and uuid so you have to activate them.

    Why not using remote desktop and two clones ?
