    thanks for the keys , but the KMS activation is only for 180 days, after 180 days, you need to activate it again , it is troublesome, and if you find a KMS key online , it has as risk of black screen if the key is blocked !
    I get the retail server 2022 datacenter product key from the Microsoft partner online store, and it is easier to activate with the retail key, and you wont have any problems in the future too

      For this process to work you have an KMS server. Your KMS server is hosted internally, this server is activated with the EA agreement contract licenses. So your server contacts the KMS license server and then gets activated.
