  • how to configure on windows 8.1

    DNS Publishing of KMS Service

    The DNS entry that is needed can be tested with the nslookup tool:

    nslookup -type=srv _vlmcs._tcp.company.com

    If the SRV entry cannot be resolved, the missing bit can be entered manually in the DNS Server:

    • Name of Service: _vlmcs._tcp
    • Type: SRV
    • Priority: 0
    • Weight: 0
    • Port: 1688
    • Hostname: kmshost.company.com

  • Hi Chrisman,

    >>how to configure on windows 8.1

    What do you want to achieve? The DNS record is on DNS server, not kms server or client.

    The KMS client query DNS server for the record to locate KMS host.

    >>If the SRV entry cannot be resolved, the missing bit can be entered manually in the DNS Server:

    It is added on DNS server, here are the details:

    If you don't have internal DNS server, you could specify KMS server manually:

    slmgr.vbs /skms <value>:<port>

    If you have internal DNS server, and you have configured it on KMS server, it would create DNS record automatically. If not created, you could add it manually.
