KMS on Windows Server 2016

Occasional Contributor

Hi,

 

I have a issue while configuring KMS on Windows Server 2016 on GUI, it crashes. After going through some of the blogs now able to activate KMS host via CMD and KMS clients are able to activate automatically but I am unable to open volume activation services console to see the reports.

I have attached an error details.

What kind of products do you want to activate using KMS? Are you using older Office products?

@Harm_Veenstra Windows 10 ENT and Office 2016, both I have downloaded from my VLSC portal.

Using VAMT is not an option?
there is NO VAMT for Windows Server 2016 but i tried installing VAMT 2.0 which was for Windows server 2012 r2 and this could be of no use
Currently I have a KMS host in place and doing its job, from slmgr.vbs script on CMD I am able to see the current status for client requests (both Windows 10 and Office 2016) and clients are getting activated from this KMS. Now how I can integrate VAMT with this KMS to see the reports on GUI?

VAMT is a tool which connects to KMS by discovering it, you should be able to use it straight away and use if for reporting
Thank you so much I will go through this and get back to you. Have a good day.
You too, hopes it works out for you like that
