    hoi

    i am a bit confused because of the following information from microsoft:
    Code:
    microsoft.com/licensing/existing-customers/product-activation-faq.aspx
    in my installation it is RETAIL_CHANNEL o_O
    i have installed a msdn version of sbs 2011 standard and i am looking now for the kms channel key to activate the sbs 2011 via mini_KMS-Activator.
    is this possible at all?
    anyone seen the KMS Client Setup Key for SBS 2011

    Sorry, either that article was compiled before MS made final decision or they just wrote some crap one more time. You can look into system32\spp\tokens\skus\ folder, there are licenses for accepting OEM SLP, NONSLP, Retail, Evaluation and D-MAK keys, but no for GVLK keys (that is KMS-client keys), you may also bother to explore pkeyconfig.xrm-ms - no keyrange or activation type for SBS:GVLK there. Plus default installation, as you noticed, creates retail channel and there's no VOL media to install from... Looks like "KMS Client Setup Key for SBS 2011" just has no way to exist...

    (OP)
    it is me again

    hoi board
    again i revive the subject of activating sbs2011std via kms.
    why?
    because i found this:

    Notes:
    * BIOS mods and Windows Loader can activate more editions of Windows only when OEM SLP serials leak
    * Trilogy runs from inside of Windows, however the trial reset is run externally (WinRE)
    * Automated KMS solutions might not require you to reinstall them, but they will depend on Windows components (services or scheduled tasks)

    can someone clear this point :confused:

    That list is wrong then, there's no KMS key. These are the only valid key types for SBS:

    Code:
    EditionId                        ProductKeyType ProductDescription
    ---------                        -------------- ------------------
    ServerSolution;ServerSBSStandard Volume:MAK     Windows Small Business Server 2011 ServerSolution, ServerSBSStandard Volume:MAK
    ServerSBSStandard                OEM:NONSLP     Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard ServerSBSStandard OEM:NONSLP
    ServerSBSStandard                OEM:SLP        Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard ServerSBSStandard OEM:SLP
    ServerSBSStandard                Retail         Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard ServerSBSStandard Retail
    ServerSBSStandard                Retail:TB:Eval Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard ServerSBSStandard Retail:TB:Eval

    If you want to see the entire list yourself you can run this in PowerShell:
    Code:
    $pkeyconfig = "$env:systemroot\system32\spp\tokens\pkeyconfig\pkeyconfig.xrm-ms"
    
    $data = [xml][Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetString([Convert]::FromBase64String(([xml](gc $pkeyconfig)).licenseGroup.license.otherInfo.infoTables.infoList.infoBin.InnerText))
    $data.ProductKeyConfiguration.Configurations.Configuration | select EditionId, ProductKeyType, ProductDescription | sort ProductDescription
