Office 2013 activation, after deployment of new VDAs with different hardware specs

Andreas Haseneder


Dear community,


I run a Citrix Farm with 10 VDAs:
7 VDAs running on ESX Host Cluster 1 
3 VDA were newly deployed on ESX Host Cluster 2

ESX Host Clusters differ in CPU and storage:
Cluster 1: CPU = E5-2687W v4 @ 3.00GHz, Storage = NAS
Cluster 2: CPU = E5-2687W v3 @ 3.10GHz, Storage = vSAN

I use PVS, all VDAs have the same image.
The VDAs do not have internet access by default, but if necessary they could access the internet via a proxy.


After I have deployed the 3 new VDAs, the Microsoft Office Activation Wizard pops up

The Wizward only pops up at the 3 new VDAs
Message: Micrsoft Office Standard 2013 has detected changes to your computer hardware. You must activate Microsoft Office Standard 2013...

Activation of Office was done over MAK


What is the easiest way to activate (without production interruption) or are there any tricks to solve this via PVS?
