Azure – New KMS DNS in Azure global cloud

image As you are probably already aware, when you deploy Windows virtual machines in Azure, Windows use the Azure KMS DNS to activate Windows.

Well, in June 2022, a new KMS DNS – azkms.core.windows.net – has started to be rolled out.

Existing virtual machines already activated remain activated with kms.core.windows.net.

It is now generally available in Azure global cloud region.

This new KMS service uses 2 new IP’s:

  • 20.118.99.224
  • 40.83.235.53
