I have used the key from announcing-windows-server-preview-build-20289 post 

and am getting 

Activating Windows(R), ServerStandard edition (bc085914-2b22-4128-ad91-a8d7d2ef501f) ...
Error: 0xC004C003 The activation server determined the specified product key is blocked


Anyone with the same issue?

@LubomirH This should now be resolved. Try it again, and thanks for letting us know.

I can confirm the activation is working now. Thanks!
