    Volume Activation Tools Error

    All,

    I've installed a new Server 2012 R2 box, which is going to be promoted to a Domain Controller.
    I have installed Volume Activation Services, added a KMS key and activated it (via phone)
    when I go to configuration, I cannot get any further.
    whether I am adding a firewall exception or not and/or adding records to the DNS zone, I press commit and get an error which reads:

    Code:
    The following error has occurred. Please resolve the error and try again.
    
    Description:
    STATUS_SUCCESS
    anyone got any ideas / suggestions?

    Did you have any luck with this problem, as I have it now too. Ah no worries fixed it realised port needs setting to 1688. Cheers

    Check your listening port is set to 1688
