Anyone succeeded in packaging and deploying Office 2016 with a Volume License?
Deploying the package (without the com.microsoft.office.licensingV2.plist) and launching the Microsoft_Office_2016_VL_Serializer.pkg (through a "Execute when activated"-script) doesn't prevent the "You have to sign in" dialogue from Microsoft.
It seems that before 15.18 the com.microsoft.office.licensingV2.plist was sufficient; but know this file is made unique for each Mac and is checked from time to time to prevent unofficial copying.
Advice from Microsoft: just run the installers (one with the application-installers, and one with the serialize-pkg) does off course prevent a roll back.
Anyone had succes with version 15.18 or higher?
Thanks for any help!

I know this thread is more than several months old. Just in case this could help someone else we run into the same issue. Here are the steps we took to get it working properly for the volume licensing version.
We built a PKG with Packages that run each PKG
fresh installed from Filewave. We could not get a Fileset Magic fileset to
work no matter what we tried. I have read online the serializer and
installer could be doing something based off of individual hardware ID for
the volume licensing installation. Maybe this will help someone in the
future if you get a request. He used some of the bash script for Office
