After installing updates released April 22, 2021 or later, an issue occurs that affects versions of Windows Server that are in use as a Key Management Services (KMS) host. Client devices running Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019 and Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2016 might fail to activate. This issue only occurs when using a new Customer Support Volume License Key (CSVLK). **Note** This does not affect activation of any other version or edition of Windows.

Open **Event Viewer **on the client device that failed activation and go to **Windows Logs **> **Application**.
