Activation Key Agreement
Volume activation offers two different models for the conclusion of volume activations. Either both types of keys can be used by customers to activate systems in their organization: if your agreement allows you to access a product that requires a key, those keys are displayed in the “Downloads and Keys” section. However, some products do not need a product key. This is listed in specific instructions in the product description in the “Downloads and Keys” catalog. Yes, yes. Re-image rights are granted to all Microsoft Volume Licensing customers. Under these rights, customers can re-photograph licensed copies of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or Full Packaged Product (FPP) with media provided as part of their agreement, provided that copies of the volume license media are identical to the product originally authorized. As a volume license customer, you`ll find the necessary volume licensing keys on the Product Key page. You can also request your keys through a Microsoft Activation Center. KSM keys can be exceptionally assigned to open customers who meet the minimum KMS activation threshold for Windows Server, operating system and Office. To request such an exception, please send a web form request to VLSC support. The Key Management Service (KMS) is an activation service that allows organizations to activate systems within their own network, so that individual computers no longer have to connect to Microsoft for product activation. It does not require a dedicated system and can easily be hosted together on a system providing other services.
If you provide Windows as an activation method using the Key Management Service (KMS) using the key management service, note that the KMS and MAK activation processes for Office 2013 are basically the same as for Office 2010, except that the Office 2013-KMS host is not supported by Windows Server 2003. The 2013-KMS Office host is supported by Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7 VL Edition, Windows 8.1 VL Edition, Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2 for Embedded Systems. KMS keys are no longer assigned to open chords, as the use of DEMA (Multiple Activation Key) keys is the preferred method for activation. Yes, yes. Volume license customers can use kms, MAK or a combination of kmS to activate systems in their organization. Customers are free to use a combination of activation methods as they see fit. A KMS key is used to activate the KMS host with a Microsoft activation server and can activate up to six KMS hosts with 10 activations per host. Each KMS host can activate an unlimited number of computers. Here you will find information on the product keys for each product, the type of license (Volume Licensing Key, KMS and MAK) and the number of MAK (Multiple Activation Key) activations used and available. Each mak has a predetermined number of allowed activations based on your volume license agreement. Volume activation applies only to systems under a volume licensing program and used exclusively as an activation tool. It is not related to the licence account or the licensing settlement.
If you need additional KMS activations to activate more than six (6) KMS hosts, send a web form request to VLSC support.
