Really quick post!
Following my setup of multiple KMS servers in my domain, I was desperate to know if things were working. A new KMS server will need a minimum of activations before you’ll see anything on a client. So how do you know if it is working?
I found this great post here; in a nutshell, on the client, check for the following event IDs:
Filter the logs first though:
…and hopefully you’ll something like this:
If you have these two events, your client is talking to a KMS and receiving a reply. Click on the event, and you can see which KMS it is talking to.
Go to the KMS host, and you should see corresponding event IDs:
Don’t forget that KMS hosts require a minimum number of requests before they’ll activate. You’ll most likely see error 0xC004F042, but bear in mind that said error can cover multiple different issues.
That is all.
