With Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, you have two different activation schemes, as previously mentioned: MAK and KMS Of course, there are also single-use retail keys, but if you re reading this book, you are using a MAK or KMS One important thing to remember: KMS and MAK are not for license enforcement Microsoft is clear on that matter If you are using MAK and have run out of activations, a phone call to Microsoft doubles those activations without a question asked The activation is to ensure that you are running genuine Windows, which protects both you and Microsoft

Multiple Activation Keys (MAKs) MAKs work the same as the keys with Windows Server 2003 and XP volume license keys: You get a key that is entered on each computer However, the difference is that a computer using a MAK still must be activated, unlike with XP/2003 volume license keys (VLKs) Each server contacts Microsoft and receives an activation code If you have a lot of machines using MAK, you can install the Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT), which acts as a proxy for communication with the Microsoft activation servers and activates machines in batches via a single connection or phone call to Microsoft The VAMT is useful for enabling an administrator to monitor the activations within the environment via the MAK key and can be downloaded from Microsoft search for VAMT When activated with a MAK, the client/server stays activated forever (or at least until a major hardware change, which requires reactivation) Key Management Service (KMS) With KMS, you enable a computer, known as the KMS host, within your organization (or multiple KMS servers for load balancing) via a KMS key you receive from Microsoft, which comes in four avors The KMS host activates itself to Microsoft, and from that point on, the KMS host activates machines within the environment No data goes to Microsoft; it s an honor system Before the KMS host can activate any computers, you need the following:

Virtual machines do not count This stops people using a KMS to bypass activation in small environments Your KMS server must maintain these numbers of clients or it stops being able to activate computers If you originally have only 20 computers, the activation requests queue on the KMS server until it hits 25 before it activates Vista machines (Of course, with 20 it happily activates your 2008 boxes) Clients nd the KMS host through auto-con guration via DNS service records (_vlmcs_tcp<domain>) or the clients can be manually con gured with the KMS server name and port (1688, by default) using the slmgrvbs script with the /skms switch, for example:

By default, KMS hosts auto-register the DNS service records, so there is little con guration to perform The KMS host is part of Vista and Windows Server 2008; you don t have to install any software The only con guration is from an elevated command prompt Run the following commands to specify the KMS key, and then activate over the Internet:

NOTE A Windows Vista KMS host can activate only Windows Vista computers, not servers A Windows Server 2008 KMS host can activate Vista and Windows Server 2008 You can also run KMS on Windows Server 2003 that can activate Vista and Server 2008, but rst download the Key Management Service 11 update from Microsoft You cannot run KMS host on a Windows server core installation

The default activation method for Windows Vista for Windows Server 2008 uses KMS However, you can change this by setting a MAK as the product key If you want to revert to KMS for a computer, enter the KMS client setup key, which is listed at technetmicrosoftcom (Search for KMS_Client_Setup) Note that these are useless without an activated KMS host in your environment All these keys do is tell your computer to use KMS for activation A computer that activates via KMS must reactivate every 180 days and by default attempts to reactivate every 7 days You, therefore, need to ensure that computers using KMS connect into a network KMS at least once every 180 days Otherwise the computer goes into grace mode again, and after the grace period has expired, the computer goes into nag (noti cation) mode until KMS is contacted As mentioned earlier, there are four avors of the KMS key The avors specify which machines a KMS host can activate:
