Windows Activation for a Virtualize Windows 10 image

Windows Activation for a Virtualize Windows 10 image

Product Line:  VERDE

Issue:

Is there any recommendations on how to manage the Windows 10 OS Product Key Activation on Clustered VERDE VDI Hosts?

I can Activate a Gold Image but that only stays activated for Guest VDIs that are spun up on that same VDI host.

How can I manage the Windows Activation when the Guest VDI desktop is launch on a different VDI Host and that OS then requires it to be Activated again.

Potentially for each Guest Windows 10 OS it would appear that it might need to be activated on all the available VDI Hosts repetitively as the Cluster Master dos its load balancing and selects a different VDI Host server.


Solution:
