I had upgraded our server 2000 box to server2003 using a cd-key which i obtained off the net, reason being it was a touch go situation and i had no choice but to use that key until our license arrived.  I have now received my license certificate from Microsoft with my authorization number and product key.

The problem is that i am not able to run automatic updates on that box due to an invalid product key. "It will not work"

Is there a way for me to change this product key without having to go to any extreme's.
