From June 2018, JD Cloud Virtual Machines has successively completed the adjustment of the Microsoft Genuine activation mode for the official Windows Server image in all regions. The original MAK activation is changed to KMS activation, which is an intranet activation where Virtual Machines's connection to the public network or manual phone activation is not required, convenient for initial activation of the intranet server.
Log in to the Virtual Machines Start －> Run－> Type cmd to enter the MS-DOS command mode
Check the current activation mode
slmgr /ipk "KMS-Client-Setup-Key"
"KMS-Client-Setup-Key" is the unified KMS activation key pair for each operating system version as shown below:
|Operating System and Version KMS Client Activation Key Pair||KMS Client Activation Key|
|Windows Server 2016 Data Center Edition 64-bit Chinese Version||CB7KF-BWN84-R7R2Y-793K2-8XDDG|
|Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition 64-bit Chinese Version||D2N9P-3P6X9-2R39C-7RTCD-MDVJX|
|Windows Server 2008 R2 Data Center Edition 64-bit Chinese Version||74YFP-3QFB3-KQT8W-PMXWJ-7M648|
(If the Windows Server image you are using is an older image that has been offline, you can go to the Microsoft official website to find the corresponding activation key pair: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-server-2012-R2-and-2012/jj612867(v%3dws.11) )
