How to Activate Windows Server 2016 without a Product Key
Windows Server 2016 is a specialized operating system designed for server only. It requires a valid product key to activate and use its features. However, if you don't have a product key or you want to try Windows Server 2016 for free, you can use a KMS client key to activate it.
KMS stands for Key Management Service, which is a server that provides activation services for Windows clients. A KMS client key is a generic key that is publicly available and can be used to request activation from a KMS server. The KMS server will then activate the client for 180 days, and renew the activation every 7 days automatically.
In this article, we will show you how to use a KMS client key to activate Windows Server 2016 without a product key.
Step 1: Get the right KMS client key
The first step is to get the right KMS client key for your edition of Windows Server 2016. You can find the list of KMS client keys for different editions of Windows Server 2016 on the official Microsoft website: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started/kmsclientkeys
For example, the KMS client key for Windows Server 2016 Standard is WC2BQ-8NRM3-FDDYY-2BFGV-KHKQY. You will need this key in the next step.
Step 2: Install the KMS client key on your server
The next step is to install the KMS client key on your server. To do this, you need to open a command prompt as administrator and run the following command:
cscript.exe %windir%\\system32\\slmgr.vbs /ipk WC2BQ-8NRM3-FDDYY-2BFGV-KHKQY
Replace WC2BQ-8NRM3-FDDYY-2BFGV-KHKQY with the KMS client key for your edition of Windows Server 2016. You should see a message saying that the product key has been installed successfully.
Step 3: Set the KMS server address
The third step is to set the address of the KMS server that will activate your Windows Server 2016. You can use any public or private KMS server that supports Windows Server 2016 activation. For example, you can use one of the following public KMS servers:
To set the KMS server address, run the following command in the command prompt:
cscript.exe %windir%\\system32\\slmgr.vbs /skms kms8.msguides.com
Replace kms8.msguides.com with the address of the KMS server you want to use. You should see a message saying that the KMS host has been set successfully.
Step 4: Activate Windows Server 2016 using the KMS server
The final step is to activate Windows Server 2016 using the KMS server. To do this, run the following command in the command prompt:
cscript.exe %windir%\\system32\\slmgr.vbs /ato
You should see a message saying that Windows has been activated successfully. You can also check the activation status by running the following command:
cscript.exe %windir%\\system32\\slmgr.vbs /dlv
You should see that your Windows Server 2016 is activated with a volume license and has an expiration date of 180 days from now.
