Hi there!

 

How to get the Windows Server 2016 licence key on an installed system?

Many tools don't support Windows Server 2016 officially, and, so it seems, every tool prints out another key on that System:

Does somebody know it works with Windows Server 2016?

Thank you for your feedbacks! :)


With best regards,

Thank you very much. :)

Will try it with a freshly installed system, where i exactly know what the key is: When i compare the output of the Nirsoft tool, it does not match with our internal MS product key lists. (But maybe the computers were not installed with a key from the internal MS product key list, how knows?)

Best regards,

Jan

It works for me. I get the same key returned as used for install.
