I am a Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) Subscription user in my team.

However, my environment, which is not connected to the internet, requires subscription authorization every 30 days.

It is quite challenging to establish an internet connection in my environment, and it's not ideal for us.

Therefore, I would like to inquire: Is it possible to change the authorization server domain for the subscription or find another solution?

If so, I could create a proxy for the authorization server myself, but I suspect this may not be an option.

I also prefer not to download an offline key.

I believe many companies face similar challenges. Thank you.

    Hello @김경원,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    For activating VS or signing in VS offline, there are two methods:

    1. Connecting to network and signing in VS periodically.
    2. Using a product key.

    I also prefer not to download an offline key.

    You need to use offline keys, if connecting to Internet and signing in VS periodically are not possible.

    See the note mentioned here: Update a stale license

    If you are using Visual Studio for extended periods in environments with limited or no internet access, you should use a product key to unlock Visual Studio to avoid interruption.

    Sincerely,

    Tianyu
