    Looking through things again [after copious amounts of coffee], it appears our server has a MAK key [lol redundancy]

    No KMS for us. Which, as far as I can tell, means I can't licence this VM.

    Unless I have read the situation wrong, there aren't 25 clients requesting activation?

    If you have the licence, can't you use the MAK that RM using during deployment? (That's ok right?).

    if its vms just create 25 then delete the ones you dont need measn nect time you rebuild real pcs they will kms activate lol

    if its just vms for testing or your own use id be tempted to just keep rearming them give you approx 120 days use without a code anyway
