Change the product key - invalid key
Posted on 2006-07-13
I built 2 servers about a month ago, using our action pack windows server 2003 R2 copy. I activated one, and we ordered a copy of windows server r2 for the other one. It took longer than expected to get the server 2003 in, and the unactivated server locked.
I now try to activate it, and click on the "change product key" in order to type in my new normal OEM windows server 2003 key, and I am told that it's an invalid key.
Is there any way around this? Is a windows server R2 action pack copy a different OS than a Windows server 2003 R2 OEM?
