Hi,
I have a laptop running Windows 10 deployed via Autopilot, not co-managed, not domain joined and the user has a E3 licence. However the user is getting the message:

Your Windows Licence will expire soon - You need to activate Windows in Settings.

In the event logs I found the following:
License Activation (slui.exe) failed with the following error code:
hr=0x8007007B
Command-line arguments:
RuleId=dca14e37-0c5c-444f-9b35-1e2f161f5ac3;Action=AutoActivate;AppId=55c92734-d682-4d71-983e-d6ec3f16059f;SkuId=73111121-5638-40f6-bc11-f1d7b0d64300;NotificationInterval=1440;Trigger=NetworkAvailable

Looking up that error code I get: 0x8007007b DNS name does not exist. KMS client.

This doesn't make sense as shouldn't be talking to any KMS server being it gets it's licence from E3

Any ideas?
