Citrix PVS 5.6 and KMS licensing

Citrix PVS KMS licensing

KMS Activation

  • Reset the activation status on the vDisk image:•Boot the master target device from vDisk in Private Image mode
  • Run slmgr.vbs -rearm in console on master target device
  • Shut-down master target device
  • Put disk in Standard Image mode and stream. Target devices will automatically register with KMS server, and activate (provided there are at least 25 systems checking in).

If you have Office 2010, the standard wizard will not render it’s activation successful.

You will still have to “hack” into the vDisk and rearm windows and office and shut it down.

set the KMS to “none” when you are imaging a machine with Office 2010 on it and only set it to KMS mode after you have re-armed it and shut it down. O

click “OK” after you set KMS mode on the vDisk

BEFORE you set the disk to standard mode, otherwise it’s not going to work… so basically you will need to open the vDisk properties twice – once to set the KMS, close out and then set the Standard disk mode.
