Default value:None

-DbConnectionString

Specifies the database that the product key or list of product keys is retrieved from. If no database connection string is provided, dep_nextref_vamt attempts to use the database that the dep_nextref_vamt user console used on the local computer. If dep_nextref_vamt does not find a database, it returns an error. You can find the connection string in the dep_nextref_vamt UI in the Preferences dialog box. On the menu bar, click View, and then click Preferences to open the Volume Activation Management Tool Preferences dialog box. The connection string is in the Database Settings section under Current connection string.
