Is it possible to change the KMS in Microsoft.com? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We made a default Vista image and we expected that it will activated via internet. We don't have a KMS server as far as we know in our organisation. But the Vista installation tries to active at a local KMS server, can we change this, so it will active at the internet, not at a local KMS server? Or did we used the wrong DVD and are we forced to create a new Vista image? We used a Vista select DVD to create this image.

  • The packadmvista is the first computer we installed with the same Vista DVD and this computer is activated 
    successful. We have a MAK key for 5000 computers and activated only a few yet, so that can't be the problem.
    Again, how is it possible that all other computers now try to activated via this computer and not at Microsoft.com at the internet? And how can we change this?
    Please respond.

  • Hi Nick0527,


      It appears that the orginal Vista image was created using a KMS key.  I know this because your Diagnotic report shows "Windows License Type: KMS Client". If the image had been created using a MAK key, the report would have shown "Windows License Type: Volume MAK"


    You have 2 options,

    1) You can make another Vista image, but using the MAK, instead.

    2) You could go to each of the computers that have the KMS key and change product keys to the MAK key.

    To change a product key, click the 'Start' button, right-click 'Computer', select 'Properties' then click 'Change Product key' and follow the directions.
