How to configure a KMS server to provide service for various domains
In a customer I had to set up a kms server to license servers from various domains.
These is the configuration that I used:
- On the KMS Server edit the registry and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SoftwareProtectionPlatform. there edit the DnsDomainPublishList value and put all the domains dns suffix.
- Go to the DNS server of these domains and create a new SRV Record and type the following information:
- Service: _VLMCS
- Protocol: _TCP
- Port number: 1688
- Host offering the service:<FQDN_of_KMS_Host>
