Server 2008 R2 Trial Activated, but Activation Pop Up still appears on Start up

Hello,

I have a server running Server 2008 R2 Trial then activated with legitimate key ,but it is still receiving an activation countdown pop up on start up. When time runs out will I be locked out? How can I remove this message? Why is this happening?

Thanks in advance!

Ignatius,

I believe the trial was installed after the release of Sever 2008 R2, but I'm not certain. The watermark only appears for about 3 seconds on startup then disappears not to be seen again until the next reboot. Here is a screen shot.

Thanks for your response.

Server 2008 R2 Build 7100 is in fact the RC and will expire.
