Server 2003 Enterprise Activation problem.
Posted on 2006-10-21
Client has a running Server 2003, enterprise edition machine. Don't know if this is from volume or retail media..
Previous consultant illegally installed using an invalid license key. The machine is activated, but refuses to install SP1 due to the bad key.
We purchased a license for the machine but are having problems changing the license key.
I've attempted to change the key by modifying the OOBETimer data.
When I re-launch the activation tool, it reports that the machine is still activated.
Anyone seen this? How can I change the license key?
