  • Server 2008 - Microsoft-Windows-Security-Licensing-SLC event ID 12293

    I have a Server 2008 machine that was originally installed using a KMS key, I have since changed the key to a MAK via Control Panel > System > Change product key.

    However every night I receive this error in my Application event log:

    Log Name: Application
    Source: Microsoft-Windows-Security-Licensing-SLC
    Date: 4/22/2010 9:22:19 AM
    Event ID: 12293
    Task Category: None
    Level: Error
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A
    Computer: server.domain.internal
    Description:
    Publishing the Key Management Service (KMS) to DNS in the 'domain.internal' domain failed.
    Info:
    hr=0x80072338

    I have run slmgr /dlv and I see the line "VOLUME_KMS_B_channel", however I also see "Key Management Service is enabled on this machine"

    I don't want to use KMS and I want to get rid of that error. Can anyone help?

    disable/stop the KMS Services.

    Clean up the KMS SRV entries from DNS

      There are no services related to KMS in the services console. It also does not appear as a role or feature in server management.

        I tried the following solution two or three times without success.

        Use the slmgr -IPK command to replace the product key. Type in the MAK product key... this will replace the KMS with the MAK.

        I tried it again using a different key this time. Turns out that MS volume licensing labeled my MAK key as a KMS key and vice-versa.

        Problem solved!
