  • Hello,

    Sure. It is rather simple. Here is the instruction you are looking for: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff793416.aspx.

    Elaborating on the sequence of actions you need:

    - Install and activate KMS Product keys on the host you have chosen as a KMS as described in the article above

    - Configure clients to use this host as KMS

    - Try activating the clients

    Regards.

  • Hi Chrisman,

    >>slmgr.vbs /ipk <KmsKey> (i'm not using oringinal lisency windows but using KMS client licesy)

    What do you mean KMS client licensy?

    If you want to make it a KMS server, you need to install the KMS host key.

    Here is the list to help you choose the key:

    Or ask activation center for help:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Licensing/existing-customer/activation-centers.aspx

    After the key is installed, run slmgr /ato to activate. Then you could run slmgr /dli to display license information.

    Best Regards,

    leo

  • Are you sure you have configured the client to use your KMS server like described here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff793406.aspx?

    What host have you specified under slmgr.vbs /skms <value>:<port>?

    Is this host accessible from your client that you are trying to activate?

    Regards.
