Click Create VDisk to begin building the virtual disk. After building is complete, the Done message
appears in the WSM VDisk Image Creation Utility window. Click Finish to complete the OS Image
capturing process. The system will reboot and finish its process after the restart.
6.5 Testing the newly captured OS image
After the OS image has been captured and uploaded, add it to the WSM database using the instructions
in Section 5.8. Make sure to set the image type to Private Mode for testing.
Boot a single streaming client and use one of the Active Directory accounts to make sure you can log into
the unit. Verify that the user account is using the roaming profile, by opening a windows explorer panel
and checking to see if the logical drive from the file server has been mounted for the user account.
You can activate your Windows OS license with KMS by using a Command Prompt with Administrator
privileges and typing the following command: c:\windows\system32\slmgr /ato. If your KMS server is
not functioning or if your firewall rules are not set properly, you may see the error message shown in
Figure 55. Double check both and retry the activation.
Figure 55: Windows Activation Failed
If your Key Management Server is functioning properly, you may still see the error message shown in
Figure 56. This message indicates that KMS has not received enough requests to perform the activation.
You will receive this message until you have attempted to activate at least 25 clients.
Figure 56: Windows Activation Waiting
If you are operating with less than 25 clients, you can continue to issue the c:\windows\system32\slmgr
/ato command to bump up your activation count. Once the KMS system as received enough requests, it
will start activating the streaming clients and you should see the message shown in Figure 57.
