Can I Deactivate a W2K3 Server Enterprise License?
Is it possible to deactivate the license registration on a W2K3 Server Enterprise? I'm not talking about uninstalling the OS or wiping the drive. I'd like for the server to go into the "You have 30 days to activate" routine.
I know that I can call Microsoft's activation department and move the activation, but that requires removing the OS from the computer.
Here's the story: I installed the server OS at a small business I consult for and submitted the bill for payment. I have yet to be paid and I'm hearing that they might hire another consultant. I don't want to take their server down, I just don't want them to "get a free ride" on the software.
