As virtual machines migrate to new hosts during regular maintenance and certain administrative functions such as resizing or starting from the Stopped Deallocated state, Microsoft Office may prompt for reactivation if you are not using KMS, and instead you are using MAK (multiple activation key). Over time, the operating system will detect multiple hardware changes, eventually causing Microsoft Office to require reactivation for this configuration.
For environments that do have the correct licensing to host Microsoft Office, the recommended configuration is to leverage Active Directory Based Activation (if deploying Office 2013). If you are not deploying Office 2013 or cannot use Active Directory Based Activation, another option is to install a KMS host within the same virtual network as the hosted virtual machines in Azure or enable access to an on-premise KMS host through a site-to-site tunnel. Please see the Office 2013 Volume Activation guide for KMS configuration.
