Recently we had moved some onpremise Server 2016 machines to Azure using ASR. When trying to activate them using the Microsoft steps

  • cscript c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /dlv
  • cscript c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /ipk WC2BQ-8NRM3-FDDYY-2BFGV-KHKQY
  • cscript c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /ato

It did not work, we had to use Automatic Virtual Machine Activation (AVMA)

  1. slmgr /ipk C3RCX-M6NRP-6CXC9-TW2F2-4RHYD

  • Install Chrome or edge on the mobile device 
  • Change it to the default browser
  • When you try and login, choose ‘Open in Edge\Chrome’ and the authentication will work.

  1. Document Forticloud key off the unit
  2. Document the Contract Registration Code off the Forticare license purchases with the usit
  3. Login with a forticloud and register the device to an email address with the company domain. Once done get the device on the internet and make sure fortiguard represents what you see in forticloud. If forticloud is expired out the box contact FortinetSupprt
