Trying to activate windows server 2008 R2 with slmgr with ipk and ato switches but it is not working. I want to activate without KMS server as we don't have KMS server configured. IS there any option to activate our servers without KMS (auto discovery)

Thanks

Google out but found no solution for this. Activating without KMS was impossible. Yes activating with KMS was the best and many of the solutions were available.

If you want you can Go-ahead and have a look at this link.
