I installed a windows server 2016 and it was activated 2 months ago, but two days ago I recieved a notice that my windows server is not activated that I need to enter a new key.

 

Thank you

you can´t activate it with the same key again?

Where do you get your key from? 

Is there some error code you can share with us?

If yes, you can have a look here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/windows-server/get-started/activation-error-codes

What happens when you try?

 

  1. slmgr /ipk #####-#####-#####-#####-#####

Hi Dave,

many thanks for your response. I have been able to activate it after an antivirus was uninstalled from the server.

Regards
