Including VL version of Office 2010 in an image: When to set KMS Host? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created an image including Office 2010 enterprise to be deployed.  I have read through the document Configure Office 2010 for capturing an image but am unclear on when I actually set the kms host.  All it seems to tell you do to is to rearm it before capturing.  We are not using autodiscovery, so it must be set manually.  Before capturing the image, are the the correct steps?

    1. Set KMS host using ospp.vbs (but do not activate with the /act switch)
    2. Rearm office (ospprearm.exe)
    3. Capture sysprepped image for deployment
    Is rearming even necessary if it has not been activated?

    Thanks for any pointers.
