Is it possible to upgrade/activate an evaluation version of Win server 2003 to a full version with a licence code? The 180 days is due to expire soon but I have a Microsoft partnership license I want to use but I can't see how to activate the O/S. I saw another thread similar on this forum, but the user had a CD - I only have the evaluation CD.

honestly - in cases like these I simply ring M$, anything that can easily be sorted can be done over the phone with them, if it can be done simply they will tell you.

Not really a suitable answer. More of a recommendation of who to contact.
