VAMT Not updating Database

Q: VAMT Not updating Database

Our VAMT server appears to have stopped updating it's database. I was under the impression each time a copy of Windows/Office checks in or activates using a VAMT server, it records it. The clients seem to be activating fine and checking with slmgr or ospp
they're reporting the correct server but the "Date of last license status" hasn't updated in some time.

I can manually Update Licence Status from the right click menu and it gets the up to date details but I thought it did this automatically. If someone could clarify how this is meant to work I'd be grateful.

Using VAMT 3.1 (10.1.14393.0) and activating Win 7 Pro and Office 2013.

Preferred Solution: VAMT Not updating Database

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)



A Microsoft Access Query:

I'm trying to move some data from an old databse "Old Database" into a new and improved database "New Database". The New Database has many more fields (including input masks etc), a new field order, as well as having removed obsolete fields. I've tried copy and pasting the info from Old Database to New Database, but it won't work.

Is there a way to merge or combine the Old Database into the New Database to avoid having to re-input the data? To be honest, there are only a limited number of fields that I need transferred across (maybe 5 or 6).

Hi everyone,

I have a question of how can I do the following:
I need to update the main table using a temp table with new record and some can be old record just with updated information. Is there a query that would do that or I need to write a little code reading the temp table checking id the record already exist?


A:Access2000 Updating a database

Why is the data in a temp table?
To do what you want to do it is easier to use 2 queries, the first to "Append" the new records and the second to "Update" the old records with the new data.
With the append query you select the Temp table first and then select the table to appand to.
With the update table you select the main table and then you have to type in the field "Update to what" the temp table and the names of the fields in it that match.

We currently run VAMT 2.0 for activating Windows 7/Office 2010 using our KMS key and need to upgrade to VAMT 3.0 for Windows 8/2012. I want to
setup a new server with VAMT 3.0 alongside and migrate across but little bit unsure on few steps. In order for our current Windows 7/Office 2010 to continue activating via our new VAMT 3.0 server, is it simple changing the DNS entry for _VLMCS to new server
or do I need to delete this and activate new server which should automatically take care of this. Or do I actually select all the licensed products in VAMT 3.0 and re-activate that way?

My plan so far is :

1) Install PowerShell 3.0
2) Download ADK
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30652 which includes VAMT 3.0.
3) Select Volume Activation Management Tool and SQL Server 2012 Express

4) Start VAMT - enter .\ADK as Database server - create new database called 'VAMT3.0'.
5) Right click Products and select Discover products.
6) Select Products in the left pane. In middle, right-click the selection and select
Update license status and Current credential from the context menu.

7) Look at the license summary. This should tell you what VAMT automatically discovered.
8) Click View, - Preferences. Under Key Management Services host selection,
make sure Find a KMS host automatically using DNS (default)
is selected.
9) Right click Product Keys, Add Product Keys :

Im using VAMT and am getting the error on ONE new computer (of 15 that Ive already completed)- error unable to connect to the wmi service.
I go to "discover new products" enter the computer name and I get the error. However; if I type in the IP address it adds it and Im able to activate it no problem. That way is ok with me, but I would like to then be able to rename the entry to the computer name rather than the IP address. Is this possible?

I am using VAMT 3.0 and when I discover products it appears to be readding all the same computers back into the database.  I use a LDAP query:
LDAP://domain.com??sub?(&(objectClass=computer)(operatingSystem=Windows 7*))
I never appeared to have this problem in previous versions, when I ran the query it would just append to my list the ones that needed to be added, but since going to 3.0 when I run the query it adds ALL the computers it finds.
so for example previously I had 10,000 machines and ran the query and only 14 machines needed to be updated it would only add the 14.  Now the same query is readding 10,014 machines and I have tons of duplicates.
I end up having to clear my database and re-run the query again to start fresh. 

Surely there is a way I can append new machines into the domain without adding all these duplicates.

I need to query a table in a database that I need to write to to determine what records I need to pull from the database I need to read from.
Example(This dosnt work):


DateVar Date;


DateVar := Select MAX(Invoice_Date) from write_To_Table;

COPY FROM read_database TO write_database INSERT-
destination_table (column_name, column_name...) -
USING select * from read_From_Table where invoice_Date > DateVar;


Any other suggestions

A:COPY FROM database TO database USING


What you need to do is:
- Connect to write_database.
Query the DateVar for your WHERE condition.

- Connect to read_database.
Query all the records what that you want to insert to write_database.
Then store the records to "ARRAY"

- Connect to write_database.
Insert your "ARRAY" to destination_table

I hope this helps.

I am sure it can be done, but you need to know what the relationships are between the different tables in the CRM so you can replicate them in the new database. If there are forms you will also need to replicate them on your own to display and manipulate your data. There is a lot more to it than just importing the data.

Greetings to all,

I'm currently having trouble with using Microsoft 2003 Database. I've got to do this task by 8am today, which is in 3 hours, and I'm stuck with this section of exercise from University.

I've also got a test based on this in 4 hours, so I'm gonna need a quick asistence on this one as soon as possible.

Task is this:
"Currently, when you select the Video Code drop down box to enter a new rental, all the possible rentals are listed. In this section, you will limit the list to only videos that are able to be hired.

1. Select the Row Source property of the Video_Code in the Video Rentals subform. Cick on the ellipsis and as you do you will invokde the query builder on the Video table.

...so on."

I cannot find the ellipsis or Row source property in the subform section. I could possibly post the data up, etc but that'd be too confusing. Guiding me with some screenshots would be wonderful.

File is downloadable at: http://www.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=45E9288010A1E3F5

The section I'm stuck with is in the 4th page of the pdf file, could be also called page26 at the bottom of the page.

If anyone could possibly help me directly on MSN, that'd be just amazing. I also might need more extra help later on, so if anyone free could help me on MSN, would really apprciate. Note: Got to finish it in 3 hours.

I have recently created a database which contains data centred around projects. Sometimes these projects are carried out by one department and that's very straightforward but often they can involve 2 or 3 different departments. There are various types of testing within each department and each study. How do I go about setting up the database to take all this. I'm thinking that maybe i need to create a many to many relationship - is that right? If so this data will have to sit in a table outwith the main "projects" table. Will I be able to create a form where I can enter all the data so that the main project data (which tends to be fixed) and this multi test type data can be entered or will i have to enter it separately into the 2 different tables.

A:Sql Database Pbm

Hopefully, you know relational theory and have 'normalized' the data.
When a given table gets too big, a typical solution is to export portions into
new tables with a 'fixed value' column, eg: year. If the size of the year-table(s)
are still too large, the next solution is export into second database.

DBMS startups can be costly -- the indices get read and memory structure are build.
Primary index will have only one entry per row of the table (by definition).
Your secondary indices can have many entries per table row.

Consider DROPing all secondary indices (they can be rebuilt later) and restart the system.
If this has a major improvement, then you know that you should consider
which indices you actually need and rebuild each and restart to see the
impact. When it become 'too costly', the last index is your problem --
consider why you have it and how you use it.

Hi all,

I have a project at work that is still in its planning phases, and I just want to understand what I'm up against.

We have a huge RedBrick database that I am going to have to run custom SQL queries against to produce some ad hoc reports for our business execs.

What tools do I need or should I ask for to accomplish this? The only SQL experience I have is running queries against a local SQL Server db from the SQL Server enterprise manager. So connecting across the network is new to me, and I don't have SQL Server available to me as a tool. Can I accomplish what I need with MS Access?

The engineers gave me the information I need to set up an ODBC connection, but I'm not exactly sure how to go about doing that. Do I do that from within Access? Where does my login name and password for the database come into play in setting up an ODBC connection?

Lastly, the schema for this database is friggin' HUGE!!!! There are approx. 58 tables in this db with millions of rows in each table. I've never constructed a SELECT statement for a schema quite that complex. What is it going to look like?

For instance, the db's name is usage. It has tables brand, customer, sku, contract and advertiser in it (for example). What would a query to pull all rows from those tables look like?

Thanks in advance for all your help,
