I installed Office 365 on a Windows 10 image. I started the image which is actually a Citrix XenDesktop. I get the following when I launch Outlook, Word etc.... While configuring Office 365 before installing, I setup the information that it has to be from KMS server that it should fetch the license.

 

Why would it prompt? and I have not specified the name of the KMS server in the configuration tool, which I am not sure there was no place to specify that. So, how would Office know what KMS server it should go to.

 

Appreciate your help on this. Thanks in advance

Hi,

 

Have you checked the guide for installing Office 365 ProPlus on a shared computer and the Shared Computer License?

I did configure with Shared computer activation using the Office Deployment Tool. I did choose that option or check it.
