I have a 2008 server that is running in VMware; the server was used for a special project almost a year ago and then shut down. Unknowing to me I forgot to activate it, probably because I thought it was a one-time use situation, Now I need to get this server back up and running for a permanent role . When I turned it on it went into reduced functionality mode because it was showing as non-genuine. I was able to activate the server but cannot seem to get it out of reduced functionality mode. I have no network and very limited services that our running to work with.
