Server 2008 - Event 12293 (Software Licensing Service) Application Error

Hi,

We have (4) 2008 64-bit Servers. Out of the 4, 2 of them are generating
Event 12293.

Type: Error
Source: Software Licensing Service
Event ID: 12293
Event Time: 4/13/2009 5:37:58 PM
User: n/a
Computer: Backup.domain.int
Description:
Event message could not be found, but contained these strings:
hr=0x80072338, domain.int

Running slui.exe 0x2a 0x80072338 generates the following Windows Activation
Error...

DNS signature failed to verify.

From what reading I have done this seems to be related to KMS which we have
not setup and are not using at this moment in time. All servers are being
activated using MAK.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this error? I'm tempted to disable the
Software Licensing Services (SLsvc.exe) but I don't know what other effects
that could cause.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you!

RE: Server 2008 - Event 12293 (Software Licensing Service) Application Error

Hello Steve,
typically we see that error code when the KMS host machine attempts to
register itself with the DNS server machines.
Open an elevated CMD prompt.
Run slmgr /dlv
What is on the description line of the machines generating these messages?
Thanks,
Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

Hi Darrell!

I ran the command on all of our 2008 servers and the message is the same...

Description: Windows Operating System - Windows Server(R), VOLUME_KMS_B
channel

Re: Server 2008 - Event 12293 (Software Licensing Service) Application Error

Hello Steve,
All four of those machines were activated using the KMS host key not the
MAK key.
That is why they are all trying to register with DNS, thus the event ID

| >Description: Windows Operating System - Windows Server(R), VOLUME_KMS_B
channel
Should be if you were using MAK keys:
Description: Windows Operating System - Windows Server(R), VOLUME_MAK_B
channel

You should change the Product key to the MAK key and activate those
machines.

Thanks,
Darrell Gorter[MSFT]
