Are you inside your company or your are working from home?
In case you are inside the company, your system should be activated by connecting to the company's internal server.
However, in case you are outside the company, you might need to connect to the internal server using VPN.
In any case, you need to check this with your company's IT department.

Hi,
Looks like it is a company license and needs to be re-armed on a regular basis form the company servers.
The gist of it is that your Windows 10 Enterprise license is a lease (usually 180 days long), and that your device is expected to periodically phone home to your organization's activation servers to renew the lease. It seems the 180 day lease is almost up.

To renew the lease, your device needs to be connected to your organization's network so that it can communicate with the server and extend the lease/acquire a new one. Whether this means that you'll need to physically be present on your organization campus to connect, or that you can connect to the network over a VPN, you'll need to check with your admins/IT department.

Hope above information can help you.

Hi,
Yes, KMS server.
Different from other versions of retail keys, the enterprise version can be activated only through business available licensing contracts.
KMS activations are valid for 180 days. To remain activated, KMS client computers must renew their activation by connecting to the KMS host at least once every 180 days.

Hi

If you don't have a KMS server, you need to use the MAK key which you can retrieve from the VLSC, click "Change Product Key" and enter it.

Hi,
What is your windows 10 enterprise version? Whether it has been updated to the latest version?
Before the issue happened, did you do any modifications? Or install any updates?
To better diagnose the issue,
Right click Start>Command Prompt-Admin and type in the following command:
slmgr /dli
Then post the output.

If conditions permit, you can put the machine under the company environment, it will be refreshed.
