  • Windows Activation - win 2012

    Hi,

    We are having one windows server 2012 evaluation edition. While trying to activate the license, in the system page, it is found Product ID: not available.

    The Windows action center is showing the error message, windows isn't activated. While trying to activate with the key, it is poping the error message "The product key you have entered will not work with this edition of windows server 2012. You must either enter run windows Server 2012 setup or enter a windows server 2012 standard evaluation product key".

    Please help...

    Regards,
    Anishk

    Where did you get your key from?

    Have you gone through the steps to download the evaluation?

      What edition does the server say it is (Standard or Datacentre)?

            If you're using MAK and not KMS then try the following from an elevated command prompt:

            Code:
            slmgr -ipk XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
            Where "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" is your product key.

                  Sorry for the delay.

                  Glad you were able to get it working. Could you share with us what you did? (the link isn't working for me)

                  I looked up the error and some people were saying that if the time is off then that could affect the activation.
