    1. Establish 2 Windows 7 (or so) KMS Client VHDs.
    2. Keep the two files 7B296FB0-376B-497e-B012-9C450E1B7327-5P-0 from X:\Windows\System32 of the 2nd Windows 7 KMS Client VHD.
    3. Activate the 1st VHD. (Count 1).
    4. Thru CMD: net stop sppsvc
    5. Replace the 1st VHD's two files 7B296FB0-376B-497e-B012-9C450E1B7327-5P-0 with the ones from the 2nd VHD.
    6. slmgr /ipk (the same KMS Client Key)
    7. slmgr /ato (Count 2)

    From here on just repeat the following four steps 'till the N counts' fulfilled.

    8. net stop sppsvc
    8.1
    Delete the two 7B296FB0-376B-497e-B012-9C450E1B7327-5P-0 and rename .bak back to 7B296FB0-376B-497e-B012-9C450E1B7327-5P-0
    8.2 slmgr /ipk (the same KMS Client Key)
    8.3 slmgr /ato (Count N)

    Can this be done with snapshots? As opposed to a 2nd W7 VM that isn't activated.

    You've saved me a week ! Just did as your guide before, now my KMS server host can active both inside and outside domain PC.
    Thanks !
