How to prevent Office from re-activation if installed in VM

Hi,

at my company we have the following problem: We bough an Office volume licence to install Office into on-prem VMs. We built a master image on one server which contains the activated Office installation. Now the problem: If we execute the image as VMs on others servers, the Office installation requires a re-activation, as the underlying hardware changed.

Is there any way around that? Re-activating Office everytime a VM starts is not an option for us.
