KMS MP for KMS running on WS2012

Unfortunately there is no KMS MP for WS2012. However, the existing MP for KMS on WS2012 works for KMS on WS2012 as well. And, of course, SCOM 2007 MPs work with SCOM 2012 (R2) either.

Just create a new string value "KeyManagementServiceVersion" with the value "dummy" (or anything else) under
HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SoftwareProtectionPlatform

After that the MP will discover the KMS. Just give it time (24h), restart the agent or override the discovery interval temporarily.

The “old” MP can be downloaded here:
