    Hi
    I'm having installed ProPlus 2013 VL activated via KMS server by ospp.vbs /act.
    Now via /dstatus I can see 147 days grace period remaining.
    I would really appreciate if I could (at least) reset the grace back to 180 days somehow (doing ospp.vbs /act repeatedly doesnot seem to renew the trial period), or in better case activate this permanently (likely online via MAK key). I assume there's still no MAK for online activation available, so it looks I need a method to reset mytrial. Ideas, suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    I'll give it a try.
    Microsoft Toolkit in latest beta is still not able to emulate KMS server?

    I feel like having problem with KMSnano (in version 10 currently).
    Running KMSnano.exe invokes some hidden background processes which terminate silently without any effect.
    Unpacking it's content to standalone directory then running Activate_Office2013.cmd invokes a small console windows process which seems to stay for infinite and doing nothing useful. After break I check my /dstatus which sadly still shows grace period dropping off (133 days remaining only :eek:)

    You can control KMSnano operation with this script: KMSnano Response Script v2.0.2 byms-7

    To simply activate Office 2013 you can use:

    Code:
    98.212.2.163
    , is online and working for Office 2013, as tested some minutes ago.

    After rearming a licensed Office will fall back to OOBE-Grace-Period, which is only 30 days instead of 180.

    Thanks mate. Did just that. Now /dstatus shows 180 days. I would like to know why this does not work with kms activator 3.10 by ratiborus? Throws error 0xC8007267.

    Mostly due to problems with time zone settings and time sync, i guess.

    Don't know. I did the time sync thing by using T. I checked the time zone and local time. Again correct. Finally I had to manually set server by using cscript ospp.vbs /setsvr:98.212.2.163 and then cscript ospp.vbs /act

    This worked.

    lunar21.no-ip.org is fine, finally a working one for me :thumbsup:.
    Anyway I'd like some offline workaround either for nanokms or MS toolkit since it's not too comfortable being dependent on temporary servers.
