we have a sbs 2003 server that now requires activation on logon it keeps asking for activation . you get a screen saying

this copy of windows must be activated with microsoft before you can continue

if you click cancel it shutsdown the server
click yes it says the activation says its sucessfull but its just looping.

we cannot logon to the server either via the main screen or via terminal services.

suggestions?
