Once you have validated the system, you will need to prepare the boot image for streaming mode by the
Rearming process. Because multiple copies of the same image will be deployed (streamed), it is
important that each one appear unique on the network. The Rearm process will provide this function.
Open a command prompt with administrative privileges and issue the command:
cscript c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs –rearm
NOTE: This needs to be the last command issued prior to leaving Private mode. Any time you return the
image back to private mode for system modification, you will need to rearm the system prior to shutdown.
Shutdown the streaming client, and modify the OS Image type to either Persistent or Volatile mode in
WSM before booting additional clients.
6.5.1 Verifying the KMS activation count
You can also verify the activation count on your KMS server. Using a command prompt on the server
providing the KMS service, enter the command:
cscript c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /dli.
This command will show the detailed information for KMS service. Look at the Current count as shown
in Figure 58. This value shows the number of activate licenses.
