Issue/Introduction



Is it possible to deploy volume licensing edition of Windows using OSIM?

Environment

Client Automation (ITCM) -- any version

Resolution

Yes, OSIM can deploy a volume license image.

Reference this Microsoft article on volume licensing:
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj612867.aspx

Computers that are running volume licensing editions of Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008 are, by default, KMS clients with no additional configuration needed.

Enter the appropriate key for the operating system being deployed by OSIM, and it will inform the deployed operating system to seek the KMS activation server on the network.
