First, try to manually assign a KMS server.

The first step is to click on start menu and search for ‘cmd.exe’ right-click on the result and select Run as administrator.

If any window pop-up asking you password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Use the following command according to your system setup.

  • Using FQDN of the host, assign KMS:cscript \windows\system32\slmgr.vbs –skms <KMS_FQDN> :<port>
  • Using IPv4 address of the host:cscript \windows\system32\slmgr.vbs –skms <IPv4Address> :<port>
  • Using Ipv6 address of the host:cscript \windows\system32\slmgr.vbs –skms <Ipv6Address> :<port>
  • Using NETBIOS name of the host:cscript \windows\system32\slmgr.vbs –skms <Ipv6Address> :<port>
  • On a KMS client to revert to automatic discovery:cscript \windows\system32\slmgr.vbs –ckms

You may encounter this error when activating Microsoft Windows either client or server edition and then one of these messages appear:

  • ”Error: 0x8007007B The file name, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect”
  • ”Activation Error: Code 0x8007232b DNS Name does not exist”
  • ”Windows could not be activated. Key management services (KMS) host could not be located in domain name system (DNS), please have your system administrator verify that a KMS is published correctly in DNS.”
  • ”Error: 0x8007232b Description: DNS name does not exist.”

Try changing the product key to a MAK key. Take a look at How To Verify or Check your KMS/MAK Product Key to help you identify your key. Once you learn your MAK key, launch an elevated command prompt. Click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories” then right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator.” In the command prompt window, run the following command then hit Enter:

  • slmgr -ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

Replace “xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx” with your MAK product key. See if this works.
