KMS activation problems
I have a load of machines i am testing with KMS.
I have office installed on the clients and also installed the key management server on a 2008 R2 box.
I am trying to activate office using it and although i have 5 test machines waiting to be activated it will not activate them. It says i need to do this manually - how does it mean manually but running the ospp.vbs /act on all 5? or installing them using a mak key?
if its the first one i have tried this or do i need a 6th for it then to work?
not sure if its just me being stupid or not!

It can find the host ok as when you try the ospp.vbs /act it finds the host but can't activate.

Also I know have 6 client machines installed - running slmgr.vbs /dli shows that the machine has had no requests.
but the machines have accepted a kms client key but just cannot kms activate.

I have found out the problem.
There is a problem with the Sysprep and if you don't use the /generalize in the sysprep file. Also if you have opened office on the image before syspreping you need to run a office rearm as it keeps the same cmid and the server was seeing them all as a single client rather then as 5 seperate machines.
hence why it was only seeing them as a single machine!
