So does this mean that even a Vista imaged machine that uses the campus
agreement install CD (which I presume has a product key that is the same
for all) must have network connectivity sustained over a certain minimum
period of time in order to NOT "deactivate"?

BS:Is the machine one that has been off campus for several months, i.e. does
BS:this person use this laptop primarily off campus? If this is the case, try
BS:connecting the vpn client while off campus, or simply bring the laptop back
BS:on campus and let it re-connect to the KMS. Hope this helps.

BS:Subject: vista activation issues
BS:> hi All,
BS:> We have a pool of latitude 820's that were imaged at the depot, and one
BS:> of them (just one out of 4 or so) started having activation problems.
BS:> (This is not a GENUINE....)
BS:> Actual error was 0x8007267c, which technet suggests a problem with the
BS:> machine not finding the KMS or MAK host- I thought a volume license from
BS:> an imaged machine wouldn't need to be activated? Why would one machine
BS:> have this problem and not the others?
BS:> Anyone have any ideas? I am about to give up and put an XP image on this
BS:> and be done with it if a solution cannot be found.
