  • Does your KMS has created the SRV record in the DNS ?

    Does the TCP 1688 is open between the clients and the KMS Server ?

    Try to force the KMS server from the client using slmgr /skms MyKMSServer:1688

  • Hi cthivierge,

    Thanks for your revert,I did telnet from clients to server for port 1688 and its open , I'm able to ping KMS server.

    ran command nslookup -type=srv _vlmcs._tcp , got below reply

    C:\Users\sathish.m>nslookup -type=srv _vlmcs._tcp

    _vlmcs._tcp.CITIPRO.HCLT.COM    SRV service location:
              priority       = 0
              weight         = 0
              port           = 1688
              svr hostname   =  internet address =

    The place I found strange is that checking event logs I can see log for 12288,12289 on client machine but no log at server side.

    Ran below commands

    slmgr /ckms

    slmgr /skms

    slmgr /ato , received error code 0X8007000D
