KMS client cache RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi

    I have workstation running in windows 7 (workgroup) machine  and I noticed the workstation is NOT activated.

    During my investigation, I noticed the workstation is connecting to stanby "KMS HOST"  KMSthree hostname which is NOT yet activated

    KMS Host

    1. KMSone.abc.com  -Activated  

    2. KMStwo.abc.com   -Activated

    3. KMSthree.abc.com  - Not yet Activated (standby)

    Now, I change the KMS host by running below command

              slmgr /skms KMSone.abc.com

              slmgr /skms KMStwo.abc.com

    and then I run the activate  

              slmgr /ato

    It's seem the kms client cache is NOT clear after detecting the "KMSthree.abc.com" which is NOT active

    Please advise on how clear the KMS client cache and point to running KMS Host server
