    Its probably best to set up a KMS Server for this sort of roll-out.

    +1 on the KMS activation pretty straight forward to set up.

    if you havent got a KMS i think the Slmgr.vbs script will still activate keys not something i have tried mind

    KMS is the way, you just set it up on a server and the clients will activate themselves. Here is a guide

    40 odd, way over the 25 machine business. I think one issue may be i needed to update VAMT. Next issue is saying that it cant contact WMI on the remote client so currently playing with that issue.

    Do the clients have firewalls on? Sounds like they are blocking the WMI check from the server.

    Eugh, Ive set inbound rule, made sure the KMS knows it. DNS is there...only thing left to do is go check there isnt firewalls on the machines but there shouldn't be....doesnt mean there isnt....
