    Anyone else with activation issues at the moment?


    Clean install of Windows 10 Version 1909 today and when attempting to activate I'm getting a 0x80072ee7 error - message states "We can't acctivate Windows on this device because our activation servers aren't available at the moment."

    Anyone else having these problems currently?

    Nope.

    What does running the command:
    slmgr /ato

    Produce for results?

    That gives:
    "Activating Windows(R), Core edition
    (2b1f36bb-c1cd-4306-bf5c-a0367c2d97d8) ...
    Error: 0x80072EE7 On a computer running Microsoft Windows non-core edition, run 'slui 0x2a 0x80072EE7' to display the error text."

    Doing that tells me "The server name or address could not be resolved" - tested both via my standard internet connection over ethernet and tethering to my mobile phone over wireless and same result.

    Change your DNS servers see that will resolve the issue.

    Did try 8.8.8.8 as well as the standard ISP DNS servers, no luck.

    Ended up reinstalling and activated fine, so who knows.

    it's a glitch with Microsoft's own windows activation servers (the problem is on their end) and nothing to do with dns
    the activation error message was fairly obvious
