Windows 10 KMS issue

Hi ,

I created a new windows 10 KMS Host

but none of our Windows 10 clients are activated

The client seems to send an activation request to our KMS server but it failed

Windows 10 KMS Host event log :

Could you help me?

I migrated to a new KMS server because the old one was broken after a Windows 10 Update

Hello @rcaamer-5096

This is a normal behavior as KMS doesn't start activating until there is a minimum of request from the clients.You can see that 3 Licensed computers, and 25 still on Grace Period.

For reviewing the configuration of the KMS server you can use the next article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/volume-activation/activate-using-key-management-service-vamt

Then you can verify the KMS Client keys installed, from this article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/volume-activation/activate-using-key-management-service-vamt

And last, you can force the activation and reporting with the command: slmgr /ato

Hope this helps with your query,
