We have been having problems with our original KMS server. The original server was to the point that it requires a new install. For temporary validation, we're trying to run the KMS server on another server (2003) to validate Office 2010. The key is activated and all reports show that the KMS is properly installed. However, when we manually direct the client computers to the replacement server and attempt activation; we receive different error codes. Some of the client computers report that there's not enough user count. Others are reporting a DNS error. We've implemented KeyManagementServiceHost.exe and WindowsServer2003-KB948003-x86-ENU.exe which is defined by Microsoft; however, the problem still continues. We've added firewall exceptions to no avail. Tried connecting by use of a fresh install windows 7 OS and returned DNS error. All suggestions to help with this scenario would be greatly appreciated.
