Betrifft: Operations Manager 2007

The Key Management Service (KMS) is one of two licensing options available in Microsoft Volume Activation 2.0. The KMS is used to activate computers running Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. Each activation request is logged on the KMS host. The KMS Management Pack collects data from the event logs of defined KMS hosts, and monitors those hosts for availability. This monitoring provides visibility into the activation traffic and the license status of volume activation clients on the network.
