Could not activate Windows License on server in Azure

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
