    Why wont windows activation work on proxy

    Locked

    by shrpsam93 ·

    Hello guys, I am having trouble activating a group of computers running win 7 pro, these are on a domain network and our filtering is with getbusi, i have tried unblocking the sites with the lists provided but still arent able to get anywhere, i have also tried logging on to the machine itself and it wont work that way either.

    Any answer would be appreciated
    Thanks

      Have you run any network tests?

      “i have tried unblocking the sites with the lists provided ”

      Wjy would MS activation server domains be blocked in the first place?

      “i have also tried logging on to the machine itself and it wont work that way either.”

      What machine?

      So, what error messages do you get? If none, what exactly happens when you try to activate Windows?

      Can you tracert from one of these Win 7 boxes to the activation server domain? Do they even connect to the internet at all?
      Do they reach any internet DNS server?

        What machine?
        The machine is a MSI Wind U100 netbook

        So, what error messages do you get?
        when i run the activation it comes up with this

        “The following information was found on this error:

        Code:
        0x8004FE33

        Error Description:
        Unable to fine a detailed error description

        Facility Code: ITF (0x04)
        Facility error code :0xFE33 (65075L)”

        Can you tracert from one of these Win 7 boxes to the activation server domain?
        I havent tried that however i have tried tracerting to other domains and nothing is working however i have picked up another workstation conflicting with the default gateway, ill chase that up and see if there is any difference

      Lots of machines, or just a few?

      Have you considered activating via the telephone method? It’s not a long-term solution, but if you only have a few machines it will be quicker than fixing the proxy settings.

      You might have to modify secpol

      Set it to use “Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session security if negogiated”
      Good Luck Windows 7 is a nightmare to get connected to the internet through a proxy.

        That sounds highly annoying. I never had the occasion to try it.

          after resolving the IP conflict, it was the fact that the proxy was set to use basic authentication. we considered the alternative of leaving the computers for 3 days so they automatically activate. came back to them today and they activated themselves, i dont understand why the proxy would allow auto activation and not manual… strange.
          later this week or next week we are going to set up a KMS server and all should be well

          Good to hear that things worked

          But I think you’ll find that you still have problems with that Node if nothing else. Do M$ Updates work?
