We have recently acquired 3 lenovo servers. It has been implemented correctly Nutanix with Acropolis, we have migrated our servers from HyperV to Acropolis without problems. In the same way we have acquired 3 licenses of windows server Datacenter, 1 for each host. However we have applied this license to 1 server of node01 correctly; but when creating new servers in the same node01, it does not allow to activate the license. The type of license we have purchased is DataCenter 2016 and it is related to the Host, so any server that we create there must be able to activate it.
We must do something additional to activate it?
Solved! Go to Solution.

By this do you mean Reseller Option Kit from HPE, which is OEM?
OEM copies of Windows licences are hadcorded to the hardware, you likely won't be able to activate these copies as they are BIOS locked to HPE hardware, and they won't activate on Lenovo machine BIOS.
