I have a Windows Server 2008 running with a pre-release Datacenter.
Today I got a message saying;
"This Pre-release version of Windows Server 2008 Datacenter will expire in 2 days"
I have run the slmgr.vbs -xpr command and this tells me "The machine is Permanently Activated".
I am not sure what to believe is this situation. I inherited the systems a few months ago so I am not sure on the orginal installation and where the OS came from. However this server is running as a Hyper-V host with 8 VM's being used for development purposes within the company.
If some one has experienced this before and know which direction to take as I do not want to have to install a fresh copy of the OS and rebuild all the virtual machines if I can get away with it.
