Hi all,
We have approx 4000 desktops single forest domain 2008 SP2 and about AD 25
sites 10 in the US and the remaining in Europe and Asia, and in the process
of rolling out Win 7 . And wanted to get some feedback on Win 7 activation
options. Some of you may already have a model/solution in place perhaps KMS
or MAK. We are leaning toward KMS and would love to get some feedback on the
dos and don'ts or what works for you .

Much appreciated, Thanks....

I wouldn't even consider MAK, you would have to manage 4000 seperate
workstation licenses. With KMS you slam it in and the workstations find the
license server via dns.
