Subject: [ActiveDir] OT: Vista Activation and KMS


I was testing out the RTM of Vista Enterprise last night and noticed I
didn't have to enter a key at any point during the install. When Windows
tried to activate, it told me there was a DNS error, so I suspected it
looks for a local activation server by default. Sure enough, in the DNS
cache was a lookup for a nonexistent _vlmcs._tcp.domain.com. Upon
further research, it appears Microsoft has not released KMS yet, and I
couldn't find any option to activate directly with Microsoft. For the
moment, is telephone activation the only option?
