  • Hello,

    I need to add MAK key to all W7 images in MDT2012 if possible or in each xml.

    How to do it properly?

    Found multiple options and explanations for MDT2010.

    Thanks.

  • this is the exact link I have found.

    Ideally, it should be enabled on KMS server I guess... will talk to the guy who manage it.

    But for now will use straight option 2 that your refer as your choice.

    THanks!

  • Ideally you would use a KMS key if you have a lot of users. MAK keys are a one time activation and require to add steps in your TS. KMS keys are automatic :)

  • Sure. The story that for xp deployments I used WDS for years with one VLK.

    Now with KMS things are more manageable. And we slowly replacing all XPs, we still have patches support until April 2015. Office 2013 activation is required too...

    Next week our Citrix guy comes he has KMS for Citrix, but it is flaky...

    Or I will ask him to tune it properly, or I will take care about.

    Thanks for advice.
