        Microsoft Windows Key Management Service (KMS) is a new Windows service used in volume-licensed environments to activate machines running Windows Vista or later versions.
        This management pack monitors and reports the health of KSM hosts within the enterprise environment.
        The Microsoft Windows Key Management Service rule group enables system administrators to monitor the health of all computers configured as a KMS host. Rules create alerts for conditions that could indicate KMS outages or impending problems. In addition, KMS activity data logged in the Windows event log are collected to support health and statistical reporting for KMS client activations.

        Feature Bullet Summary:
        Alerts are generated for the following conditions:
        • KMS initialization failures
        • DNS SRV publishing failures
        • The KMS machine count is below a specified low-water mark
        • No KMS activity has occurred for designated periods

        • A data collection rule is provided that sends all client requests logged by KMS to the MOM database for subsequent analysis.
        • A sample set of SQL reports is provided that can be used as a basis for extensive reporting on client activations.
