  • Question

  • We have a 2016 KMS host. It's publishing a Office 2016 KSM key. It works fione and Offoce 2016 cluents can obtain their Office license.

    But after I purchased more Office license in another contract, we needed to add a second Office 2016 on the same KMS host. But when I add the second Office 2016 KMS key, the KMS host lose the first OFfice 2016 KMs key. It only accepts one KMS key for the same product+version.

    If now we add once the fisrt Office 106 KMs key, one more time it loses the other Office 2016 KMs key.

    We need to publish all our Office 106 keys but we cannot. I don't know how to proceed in this case.
