    this isn't right...

    it should say: VOLUME_KMS_R2_x channel

    your example suggests to me that this server is not acting as a KMShost because it has an MAK pkey installed, not a KMShost pkey installed.
    i would re-install the KMShost pkey and re-activate that.

    example of how it *should* look, is here:
