Windows 2008 Volume Activation can be done by following 2 methods tutorials

  1. MAK [Multiple Activation Key] ACTIVATION

  2. KMS [Key Management Services] ACTIVATION

MAK ACTIVATION [Multiple Activation Key]

  • This is suitable for smaller or medium size organization, which have smaller than 25 computers.

  • We have common key for multiple computers. Multiple activation Keys allow activation of specific number of computers. Each successful activation reduces the activation pool. For example MAK key that has 50 activation, allows for activation of 50 computers. Using proxy server and by using VAMT [Volume Activation Management Tool].

  • Activation can be done by directly connecting to Microsoft Server via Internet or via Telephone conversation.

  • On server Core to activate it SLMGR -IPK <KEY>


  • Activation is Permanent, so if you mess with it you will have to deal with Microsoft.


  • This is suitable for larger size organization, which have 5 or more Server and 25 or more computers.

  • We have common key (Single Key) for multiple computers, that get installed in KMS HOST.

  • KMS HOST Server gets activated only once. Organization using KMS should have 2 KMS server deployed, one of which will function as a backup host to ensure redundancy.

  • KMS HOST Server gets activated upon threshold of 25 or more computer before activation can occur.

  • KMS volume clients i.e. Windows 2008, Vista, Windows 7, Office 2010 activate their copies via KMS HOST.

  • Activation of client gets renewed by reconnecting to the KMS Server every 180 days.

  • KMS Server directly connect to Microsoft Server via Internet or via Telephone conversation.



Difference between RAID & WINDOW BACKUP

  • RAID is considered as LIVE BACKUP. Any mistake or change, good or bad will be backed up immediately. Biggest advantage of RAID is it is IMMEDIATE, ACCURATE and UP-TO-DATE. But same way any Accidental change, Deletion or Virus can make it blank.

  • Windows Backup will only happen when you schedule it to happen. You can backup your data on Local HDD or Network Shared Resource (Schedule Tape Backup Not supported)

  • You have to make organization strategy to backup up

  • Organization DATA (Most Imp)

  • Registry Files

  • Boot Files,

  • Active Directory and DNS Database

  • HDD are primary data storage devices used in computer. It can be IDE, SATA or SCSI
    While USB disk, CD-Rom & DVD are called removable storage media.



Traditional type of hdd used by all of us. The disk are divided into one or more PARTITION,accessible by drive letter c: d:


Are disk converted from Basic disk to Dynamic disk using Disk Management, there after partition are called Volume. It can be extended on single or multiple disk

Works with FAT32 system

Works only with NTFS

Primary Partition – Each disk can have max upto 4 Primary Partition out of which one must be Active partition which is used to boot the system.. It can be formatted using FAT, FAT32, NTFS

Simple Volume – Same as normal partition

Extended Partition – In a disk there can be only one extended partition.

Spanned Volume – is a dynamic volume that content space from one disk upto 32 disk. It write data on one disk till it is full, then it write to another. No fault-tolerance, so if any disk fail then all you data gone.

Logical partition - are created inside Extended partition. Logical drive cannot be marked active & can’t be used to boot system.

Stirped Volume – combine space from 2 to 32 disk.
