I am using the Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT 2.0) on a new 2008 R2 server and am getting a (403) forbidden error when I try to refresh license keys.  I am also unable to activate valid MAK licenses.  I have VAMT running on 19 other campuses without any problem.  Can anyone point me in the right direction to fix the problem on this server?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I just discovered that WSUS 3 is also getting a (403) Forbidden error when trying to connect.
Guess it has to be something on this server that is setup wrong.  Any help would really be appreaciated.
Thanks again
