We have about 5 RM Ecoquiet 965 on site. 4 of them are activated by KMS server except one.
I have tried doing it from server using VAMT tool and slmgr.vbs from client. It gives error below;
The software Licensing Service reported that the computer could not be activated with a VL product key. VL systems reqs upgrading from a qualified OS.
I thought about BIOS update however all other computer got same BIOS version and have successfully activated.
So far I have rebuild the computer.
slmgr.vbs /ipk XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
No joy. Any ideas?
If you have experience updating BIOS on RM computers. Can you please help? I have tried updating using RMUSB PREP as instructed on RM web site, it has not for me.

I have a couple of Ecoquiet 965s sitting next to me. The're licenced for Vista Business, which IIRC isn't a qualifying OS for volume licencing.
For slmgr.vbs /ipk I used Windows 7 Ent KMS setup key from Microsoft Key Management Server (KMS) Details – Metcorp Consulting Tech Blog. It will install the key ok. But when I do /ato it will display the error mentioned above.
I have used this method on other computers before it has worked.
In my case, other identical computer is working. Have you tried BIOS update? What is the BIOS version?
Have you got EES for volume licencing?
Some odd computer that didn't activated by default was activated by installing standard key and /ato.
How are you imaging the stations? Have you reached a rearm limit?
We have image the system by MDT. However to re-build this station, I used Win PE and imagex to apply image ( it was same image WIM file from MDT). The rearm limit on the client was reached.
ive had this with odd old dells before. it a nutshell the pc diddnt have (or not up to date enough) a slic bios so when windows check the bios (as ees is an upgrade) it cant see a qualifying product to upgrade from (i also suspect win8 pcs might have this issue if you sidegrade them to win7). In the dell in questions case a bios flash fixed it other than that shove a mak key on it
<br>Is it working now?<br>
<br>I have never heard of a problem with OS installation with MDT. Was the MDT image built from the CD or did you import a custom image? We install with no key, it contacts the KMS by itself and works no issues on all hardware (assuming the drivers are imported).<br><br><br>
