Activation VM under Windows Server 2022 Standard

Hi all,

I've installed a Windows Server 2022 Standard as Hyper-V host and created two virtual machines also with Server 2022.

I've add a valid produkt key to the Hyper-V Host and this is succesfully activated.

How can I activate the Windows Server version on the two virtual machines?

Thank you, this seems to work.

Yes you would use the same key using the same method you used on the host.

The only option to overcome this is to introduce a KMS server within your environment 

KMS isn't the only alternative method. There is also AD Activation.
