    Yes, that all is correct. If you needed PowerShell assistance I'd suggest closing this one by marking answer and open a new thread here.

    Support for Windows Server 2008 already ended and you should consider upgrade to supported version of Windows Server, take a look at:

    Hi,

    You can use the VAMT for online and/or proxy activation. To install and activate ESU keys using the VAMT, follow these steps:

    Download and install the Volume Activation Management Tool.
    Download the VAMT- ESU configuration file and update your VAMT configuration file.
    Configure the client device’s firewall for the VAMT.
    Add the ESU product key to the VAMT.
    Select the product, right-click, select Activate, then select your activation method, as shown below:
