Hi, I need to set up a KMS for Office 2013 activation in a new domain that should serve another domain/s in the same forest. The primary request is for Office only. I am sure that the next one will be for activating OSes.
I started to collect blogs articles (there are tons). Have a clear one for setting up Office 2013 KMS (server and client parts). The questions: 1. Could KMS set for Office accommodate OSes activations (didn't find clear answer on web). The primary goal now is to activate Office in different domain. I guess it will not be a big issue (with appropriate instructions). I saw similar scenario for OSes activation.
Finally it is DNS config. What about Domains trust? I am planning to first make the Office activation work in the same domain where KMS is placed.
Then to move to primary request activation on different domain. Just want to be generally prepared. --- When you hit a wrong note its the next note that makes it good or bad. --- Miles Davis. Using DNS records for your KMS can save you lots of effort.
The KMSclient computers will attempt to auto-discover SRV records in DNS, so if you create (or allow the KMShost to auto-publish) those SRV records in DNS, the clients will auto-discover those _vlmcs._tcp. Contoso.com SRV records and auto-activate to the KMShost.
If you have several namespaces to service, you can configure the registry of the KMShost to auto-publish into multiple namespaces (that's what I do). Eg my KMShost is kmshost.corp.contoso.com, my kmshost auto-publishes to that namespace. KMSclients which also reside/default to that namespace (corp.contoso.com) will auto-discover via _vlmcs._tcp.corp.contoso.com I also configure the same KMShost, via registry, to publish into additional namespaces: region1.corp.contoso.com, corp.fabrikam.com.
