Windows Server 2008 R2 restored from netbackup getting annoying pop up not genuine

I'm receiving the pop-up showing that our Windows Server 2008 R2 version is not genuine. We had to restore the OS from net backup. We restored the server from a full back up that included the C drive, system state, and volume shadow copy components. We also restored from incrementals of the C drive. I see the license key installed, but we keep getting the annoying pop-up that it is not genuine. Is there a registry key that we can modify or patch that is missing?

You can call Microsoft and activate it by phone

you must re-activate the server before this operation.
