Symptom

Your system does not activate the office license via KMS.

Cause

KMS will sometimes not work. You need some manual intervention.

Solution

This is a direct try to activate Office 2010 via a KMS server in your network.

cd \Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14

cscript ospp.vbs /act

If this does not work, please check your DNS for the following entry:

_vlmcs._tcp.<yourdomain>

This can be done with the cli of nslookup.

nslookup

set type=srv

_vlmcs._tcp.<yourdomain>
