Volume License Keys:  Volume License Keys Activation ≠ Licensing New computers or new installations have 30-day window for activation with a license key. There are two types of license keys now: MAK (Multiple Activation Key) For single workstations activating directly with Microsoft via internet or by telephone call KMS (Key Management Service) For internal activation on a secure Vista network of andgt;25 systems. Activation - MAK:  Activation - MAK MAK (Multiple Activation Key) One key for the site - Similar to current license model for Select licenses. Number of activations should equal the number of licenses sold. One-time activation only is necessary. Unless significant hardware changes occur, then reactivation is necessary. If a MAK key is stolen and misused, Microsoft can invalidate it so it cannot be used for new activations. Activation - KMS:  Activation - KMS KMS (Key Management Service) KMS service runs on a Win system; MS authorizes KMS service to run. DNS has to have a server record of the KMS service. Actual code does not reside on the individual computer. At activation when prompted to enter license key, hit Enter and it automatically activates against the service. Computer activates against the KMS service every 7 days. If a system goes beyond 180 days (6 months) without authenticating with internal KMS, then it will go into a 30-day Grace Period indicating it needs to be authenticated. Slide6:  Reduced Functionality Mode:  Reduced Functionality Mode Summary:  Summary We can use both MAK and KMS codes. Microsoft’s effort to control piracy includes their ability to invalidate the code for future activations. If a MAK is invalidated, future activations will fail Genuine Advantage authentication. KMS activations would never be invalidated because the code cannot be used outside the network.
