    As far as I know unless you can use remote desktop either you will have to get someone on the site where the server is to activate it by the automated telephone method or get them to read/send to you, perhaps a screen grab, the installation ID, you do the telephone activation then send the activation code back to be entered.

    Oh mod BIOS (providing you can update in Windows or have some sort of RAC card in it) & then apply OEMBIOS changer

    So yes, it can be done all remotely
