extend remote desktop services trial period

hey guys,

we had a rds server here that just went past that 120 day mark and its not allowing logins. I am ordering a license but it will take a few days. How can i get it extended for a few days??

I only solution I can think of would be to contact a Microsoft Rep and plead your case.

You should be able to get a license immediately if you can get a access to corporate credit card and so if urgent enough you could plead the case with management

Microsoft's official stance on this matter is to rebuild your RDS deployment if you need to 'reset' the grace period. I do know of a way to reset the grace period but this would be in breach of their licensing terms so I'm not going to share this on EE.

As stated, there is no legal way to do this. Four months is a pretty generous grace period...
