Office 2016 Professional Plus Key

I've added the Office 2016 KMS key to my KMS server. Download SW_DVD5_Office_Professional_Plus_2016_W32_English_KMS_MLF_X20. Enter and install your KMS.

I am Doug and I will be assisting you with this technical issue. From your description, I understand that you would like to know the procedure of installing Office 2016 KMS service to a Windows 2016 Server.

I would like to tell you that Office KMS activation is not related to Windows. Activation Code For Poker Academy Pro more. All volume license editions of Office 2016 have a preinstalled.

GVLKs support both KMS and AD DS-based activation. On the Office 2016 KMS host computer, you install and enable only one KMS host key to activate all volume license editions of Office 2016 KMS clients. If the Office 2016 KMS host computer is installed and configured, KMS activation occurs transparently to the user when an Office 2016 client is first installed.

The client activates at the first launch of Office 2016, provided that there have been at least four previous activation requests to the KMS host computer. This is because the KMS host computer requires at least five requests before it begins activating clients. You do not have to do anything else to set up the clients. KMS clients can locate a KMS host computer automatically by querying DNS for service (SRV) resource records (RRs) that publish the KMS service.

If the network environment does not use SRV RRs, you can manually assign a KMS client to use a specific KMS host computer by configuring the following registry key on the KMS client: HKLM Software Microsoft OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform The KMS host name is specified by KeyManagementServiceName (REG_SZ), and the port is specified by KeyManagementServicePort (REG_SZ). The default port is 1688. These registry keys can also be set through the ospp.vbs script. For more information about ospp.vbs, see.

For additional configuration options, such as how to specify the KMS host name on the KMS client, or to change the KMS key to a MAK key, see. I would like to share some articles as following to help you know about Office KMS activation: Plan volume activation of Office 2016 Set up Office 2016 KMS clients Volume Activation Planning Guide If anything is unclear, please feel free to let me know.

Windows Server 2016 KMS – Office 2016 & Server16/Win10 KMS Recently, we found that Server 2016 standard was having issues using the volume activation tools that are built in. Instead of using the VAT role, we elected to build our KMS server through command line. In this tutorial, I will walk you through the steps necessary to complete your new KMS install using Server 2016 Standard. We are installing a KMS server for Server 2016, Windows 10, and Office 2016 Pro Plus clients. (Other versions also activate as it is backwards compatible.) Note: We are using VMware Hypervisor 6.5 (Free), and our KMS server is running as a VM using Windows Server 2016 Standard (with desktop experience). Screen capture images can be browsed here. ->• Create a Windows Server 2016 Server (any edition). • Set the timezone, name (and join) your server with your Active Directory.

• Enable Remote Desktop and set a static IP address (optional) • Check for, and install, all windows updates. • Reboot the server • Install the Volume Activation Services Role through the server manager. Click next through the entire process leaving the defaults. (This GUI is what crashes for us, which is why we are using command line.) • Reboot the server once the installation completes.

• Visit the Microsoft Volume Licensing Center and obtain your KMS keys for Office 2016 and Server 2016. Keep these for future reference. While on the volume site, download “Office Professional Plus 2016 Key Management Service Host”.

It will be an ISO file. • Extract the ISO to C: kms or an appropriate location. • Use an elevated command prompt for all of the following steps • Install the Office 2016 KMS Host pack (What we extracted to C: kms) • cd c: kms • cscript kms_host.vbs • After the VAT popup appears, close VAT and hit enter twice to return to a standard command line.

• Install the KMS keys for Windows and Office, one at a time, waiting for the confirmation that the key has been installed prior to continuing to the next. • slmgr.vbs -ipk • slmgr.vbs -ipk • Export the licensing information. This is for two reasons. First, to make sure both keys have been inserted correctly, and to obtain the activation ID. • cd c: windows system32 • cscript slmgr.vbs -dlv all >C: kms export.txt • cscript must be used to export the information into a txt file.

• Open the recently created export.txt file, and scroll to the licensed products. Copy the Activation ID‘s for both products and keep for the next step. NOTE: The Activation ID and Application ID are NOT the same, so make sure you obtain the correct ID. The easiest way to find the correct product is to locate the Installation ID. It will only be present on the two products that we have installed a key on (even though we will not be using the Installation ID.) • Activate your product keys. Do each command one at a time, waiting for the confirmation before moving to the next. • slmgr.vbs -ato • slmgr.vbs -ato • Confirm that your products are activated and licensed.

• cscript slmgr.vbs -dlv all >C: kms export2.txt • Confirm that the two products identified before have “licensed” as their licensing status. • Now your server is licensing clients. There are thresholds that will determine when activation starts. • Windows Server will activate after a count of 5. • Windows 10 will activate after a count of 25. • Office 2016 will activate after a count of 5.

Additional Information about KMS: A Server 2016 KMS key will activate all server editions up to 2016. It will also activate all Windows Client editions up to Windows 10 including 7, 8 and 8.1.

The Office 2016 Professional Plus key will activate both Pro Plus and Standard Office 2016 installations. Post navigation.
