i have his problem; a month ago a collegue rebuild a IBM server with the IBM startup CD (for SCSi interfaces etc.) and after with a Microsoft Win 2003 Server Enterprise (a copy probably by MSDN). We have buy the correct license (open license) for W2003 Ent but the codes from MS are different and it’s impossible to activate the installed copy.
MS says that the actual version is a retail and it’s necessary to reinstall the correct CD to bypass the time bomb (remains 4 days).
Winver say that the installed version is windows server enterprise 2003 edition ver. 5.2 SP1 bild 3790 srv03_SP1_RTM050324-1447.
Is it possible to change the serial without reinstall all the system?
This server is working with a lot of users..
We have the original license, not a cracked!
If you have any suggest…
Thanks in advance
