Volume Activation Management Tool allows administrators to automate and centrally manage a range of activities related to Windows client, Windows Server, and Office 2010 activation.
Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT) is a managed MMC plug-in. VAMT uses Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to configure managed systems. A convenient command line interface (CLI) allows automated, scheduled VAMT tasks without UI interaction.
Using the VAMT console, administrators can perform many activation-related tasks on remote computers:
- Manage product keys obtained from the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) or other sources including retail and Microsoft subscription programs such as MSDN, TechNet and partner programs -- and product activations using those keys.
- Activate remote systems using Key Management Service (KMS), Multiple Activation Key (MAK) or retail activation methods.
- Perform disconnected proxy activation and reactivation of systems without each system having to connect with Microsoft activation services individually.
- Assist with license compliance by enabling IT administrators to monitor system license state, including whether systems are licensed and running genuine Windows or Office.
