This is fourth part of the five-part series that explains in-depth about the general sign-in issues (like entering incorrect passwords or forgetting user IDs and passwords) and Microsoft 365 account activation and recovery process. In this part, we will discuss how to combat major Microsoft 365 accounts activation issues without accessing the portal and also about how M365 Manager Plus simplifies Microsoft 365 administration and solves challenges that you face while using native tool.
Account activation process can get tedious at times. The solution for almost all major activation issues routes you back to the Microsoft 365 portal. If you want to activate your Microsoft 365 account without going through the portal, make sure you first configure proper intranet zones in your web-browser. The various domains used by Microsoft 365 for various products and services need to be added to ensure that all cloud-based applications run with the same configurations as internal applications.
Once this is done, concentrate on the common causes that lead to activation issues like desktop containing outdated versions of software or using an older Microsoft 365 license. You can use the OSSP.vbs script to modify and manage volume licenses.
- Open the command prompt.
- To get information about each license in the system run: cscript.exe “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16\ospp.vbs” /dstatus cmdlet.
- To remove the old and outdated licenses, run the following command: cscript.exe “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16\ospp.vbs” /unpkey:TCK7R
You have M365 Manager Plus to help you out with almost all the other Microsoft 365 issues.
