This past weekend our only server had to be reinstalled due to a disk crash. Since I inherited this network without any documentation whatsoever, nor any software CDs.
I had no other choice but make use of what I had at hand: A set of Win 2003 Std edition from those packs that Microsoft provides to MOLP customers, I lent it from a friend. I did the install and did a restore, thank God it worked.
My question is the about the Windows Server 2003 Std Edition License key code on the server side. This server was bought as OEM, to my understanding, since there is a 25-digit license product key sticker on this Dell PowerEdge 1800.During the installation
I used this product key.
After installation finished I received the message that I needed to type in another activation key because the key I used had been activated already. I chose to activate the key through the Internet. never chose to call Microsoft.
What can I do to fix this? I'm running on a 30 days trial right now.
Thanks in advanced!!!
