  • Hello, 

    I have setup a windows server 2016 with the role Volume Activation Services.

    After installation I configured the VA Services with a Windows Server 2016 KMS Host Key.

    Now I want to configure the activation of Windows 10 Pro cliënts.

    But when I run the slmgr.vbs /ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

    I have been given an error: 0xC004F015

    If you have established WS2016 with KMS host key, this server can already issue activations for Windows10 :)

    (note: you must have 25 KMSclient computers as minimum)

  • After you've ran the slmgr.vbs /ipk xxxx... have you activated your Windows 2016 ?

    1. Install the Windows Server 2016 CSVLK

        Cscript.exe %windir%\system32\slmgr.vbs /ipk <insert Windows Srv 2016 DataCtr/Std KMS CSVLK here>

    2. Activate the Windows Server 2016 CSVLK

        Cscript.exe %windir%\system32\slmgr.vbs /ato

    Because as DonPick said, a Windows 10 client will be activated with the Windows 2016 KMS license
