    Can we activate it with KMS or Loader (Microsoft Toolkit). Or only online?

    I suoppose there will only be gVLK key for Automatic Virtual Machine Activation (AVMA) Key for Datacenter Server (surely there would not be SLP OEM one for that...)
    Which might (or not) work with current v5 of KMS

    It's possible to generate valid GLVK keys with the KeyInfo utility.

    The GroupID is 1336 and the valid KeyID range is 1000000-999999998 (taken from pkeyconfig).
    The secret parameter can be anything, as it isn't validated.
