Different questions about KMS Host on a Server 2008 R2

Recommended Posts

Hello community,

I'm about to setup an Active Directory environment for fout KMS Clients based on Server 2008R2. My KMS host will be also based on 2008R2. But here are my questions:

1. Does the registration key OF THE WINDOWS SERVER HOST matter? I mean i've already installed the server planned foe the kms host and also activated this OS with a mak key. As far as i understand i have to register a kms key with slmgr.vbs ,but i assume that this has nothing to do with the activation of the server where the kms service for the kms host resides ,right?

2. I've seen different "_VLMCS" DNS SRV records on my dns server from different 2008R2 in our AD. I guess this means that these systems activated their Microsoft registration with a KMS key.
