Reason:0x8007267C
AppId = 0ff1ce15-a989-479d-af46-f275c6370663 SkuId = b322da9c-a2e2-4058-9e4e-f59a6970bd69
Trigger=NetworkAvailable
Comments
 
We have seen this event recorded when a product that requires volume activation has been installed in an environment (i.e. at home) where there is no management for activation (a central Key Management Service or KMS). The SkuId bit should help in identifying the culprit (i.e. SkuId e13ac10e-75d0-4aff-a0cd-764982cf541c belongs to Microsoft Visio 2013 which we identified in that particular case).
Reason: 0x8007232B AppId = 0ff1ce15-a989-479d-af46-f275c6370663, Trigger=TimerEvent - According to ME929826, error 0x8007232B may occur if the computer is unable to locate a KMS server, in many cases due to a DNS failure.
We are a MS shop with volume licensing. This problem arose due to installing MS Office 2013 using the KMS key when there is no Key Server. No idea why it took the KMS key originally. Loaded MAK key seems to have worked.
