The KMS or Key Management Service is one among the methods provided by the Office Activation Technologies to activate the products. The products should also be licensed under Microsoft Volume licensing programs. The second method is the Multiple Activation Key and the third one is the combination of both. The KMS host key enables the KMS to activate a host computer and provide the local activation service in the platform. The activation of the Office 2010 is required for all the editions since Microsoft policy demands so. If the system is deployed under the Key Management Services, then the user need not require entering the product key. This option is provided only for the Office 2010 products since they are preinstalled with the KMS client key. Only one license key is required to activate all the editions of the Office 2010. Also the KMS key is not specific to the Operating System. The uninstall option of the Office 2010 KMS occurs when the user need to migrate the server. The steps to perform uninstall is mentioned below.
