I have set up a KMS server on a 2003 server with the lastest update to KMS for windows 7 and 2008 R2 support. I have registered the win 7 enterprise kms key on the kms server. When the clients try to connect they come up with the following error Error: 0xc004f038 The software Licensing service reported that the computer could not be activated. The count reported by your key management service (KMS) is insufficient.
I know this error means that the KMS server has not reached 25 activations yet. But I have 38 devices that were imaged from a syspreped windows 7 enterprise.
I have tried to follow this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929829 But I have built my image from a sysprepped image so the CMIDS should be fine. The commands that they say to use in this KB dont show the CMIDS either.
Any Ideas how I cant activate these Machines? Or is it a matter of playing the waiting game.
