KMS to MAK key change? RRS feed

  • Question

  • So, i am a new IT manager at our company, and while reviewing all the licences, i found that we have 5 MS Project KMS keys, while no KMS server installed. The question is: can we exchange KMS keys to MAK keys through reseller or Microsoft? And if not, whom i can contact fro the quote on KMS host key in the Baltic region?

    I really tried to get the information from our regional Microsoft office, but the call was dropped three times in a row

    Thanks.
