Cannot activate windows 2012 ROK


Cannot activate windows 2012 ROK

Hi Everybody,

My client bought a new ML350 G9 with Windows 2012 Std ROK, I installed the server with intelligent provisioning and in that phase I wrote the licence number find on the ROK.

Installation was completed well and server is up and running  but at first start asked again the licence id. So I checked if the activation was completed and found that is not.

Internet connection works (done update), but still cannot activate and see this message:

error 0xC004B100 The activation server determined that the product could not be activated

On the event viewer I see (translated from italian): 

Could not get activation token (hr=0xC004B100) for model id ID {88d92734-d682-4d71-983e-d6ec3f16059f}

What's Wrong ?

Many thanks to who can reply.


Re: Cannot activate windows 2012 ROK


verify in Windows server date/time settings (for example, if server use date/tine from past) and set actual values. And then you can try activation again.
