Accept as answer if the reply is helpful--
I have a new install of Windows Server 2019 that will not allow me to activate windows. I also cannot open any of the UI tools for activation or entering the product key but I get no error message.
The error code I get is 0x80072F8F or sometimes 0x87E10BC6
Things I have tried:
DISM and sfc check to ensure the image is not corrupted
