The problem each time was that the Windows License Manager Service was not running. That can also be an issue on premises. This is what I use for the Office and Windows editions that support it. I checked the installed updates and definitely not in that list. Though Veeam says it's supported on 2016 Server, it seems to conflict with the Windows Update service. I am running Windows 10 and have had zero problems with it. I think I'm cleverer than them.
Go to the Store to buy genuine Windows. I installed a retail version of Windows 10 Enterprise on my Surface Pro 3. You can definitely still install additional roles on a hyper v host. Additionally, there is often an error saying that the update is not applicable to your machine. After that you can have a look at the overview screen and install the role. After a few weeks of believing that my server was activated and running fine.
When you complete your evaluation, you can your evaluation versions to retail. Hi Ravi, Please see my post reply to Marc above. I think that I had to change the account under which the service runs and make sure that the service was started before trying to re-install. The guy tried to help me but denied any knowledge of this issue. Hi great article, been following you guys for a few years now. Werkt bovenstaande ook met Server essentials 2016 virtueel met esxi 6.
Either way will work just fine. The later is great for more secured environments. Please help save hours of work while I worked out licensing with my vender. Am I missing something obvious? If it fails, it will show you a message box. I am located in Switzerland. I believe what he meant was that you can use this activation key multiple times - as opposed to it being a one-time-use key - which is correct.
I already did similar blog posts for Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2. This is often needed if you have a single server hosted at a service provider. Why are we doing this? Hope this helps anyone else that runs into this issue. Would you expect the same procedure to work for Server 2012? You can definitely still install additional roles on a hyper v host. If anyone knows why some people see to be done in seconds, others in 2, 4 and now 24 hours, that might be helpful? Things I have changed: -I've messed a bit with the registry, shifting the performance towards gaming. But it seems as though the command line system works but some feedback, anything would be better than two notifications in 24 hours.
The installation takes a couple of minutes to get going. Activation and licensing have little to do with each other. This is a expected behavior, but running in compatibility mode will not fix it. Any help to resolve this should be helpful. The virtual machines running on these hosts mix of 2003R2, 2008R2, and 2016 vm's seem unaffected for now.

On the TechCommunity site, you will find numerous technical communities across many topics, which include discussion areas, along with blog content. It's possible to install other roles on Hyper-V hosts, but it's not supported by Microsoft. Server activations are working fine as are Office 2013 and 2016 activations but my Win 10 education and Win7 pro clients are giving an insufficient count even though I have 50 of them pointed at it. Hello, First of all — Thank you so much for a lovely article. Of course, I couldn't forget to mention that Windows Server 2016 is way better when it comes to Internet speed and connectivity, not to mention realiability. This would be our recommendation moving forward.
I updated the description in the article. Maybe by end of day I'll be able to actually do something useful. Notice that the entries are not the same. I know this thread is getting pretty old, but i have a fix for it that others may find useful. Does it not end in conflicts? I am a Senior Cloud Advocate at Microsoft. Windows Server 2016 Evaluation editions expire in 180 days.
