"Windows couldn't be activated" Windows Server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have just upgraded (migrated) my VPS with Windows Server 2012. Everything works fine except that I have a message "Go to Action Center to activate Windows." However, when I do that, I get "Windows couldn't be activated... No KMS could be contacted... see Application Event Log for additional information."

    This log is very long but this looks the most relevant exerpt -

    License Activation (slui.exe) failed with the following error code:
    hr=0xC004F074
    Command-line arguments:
    RuleId=eeba1977-569e-4571-b639-7623d8bfecc0;Action=AutoActivate;AppId=55c92734-d682-4d71-983e-d6ec3f16059f;SkuId=f0f5ec41-0d55-4732-af02-440a44a3cf0f;NotificationInterval=1440;Trigger=UserLogon;SessionId=2

    So what do I do now?

    Thanks,
    George
