I'm trying to activate windows 2008 server SP2 today since the activation trial is done.
I do not have an internet connection with this server so I can not activate online, and with the other servers in this farm I've been able to run the
slmgr -ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx and then it would open up the activate by phone method and we would just activate that way.
I say again, I don't have an internet connection so I can not do the online activate.
If I do the slui 4 it brings up the activation window but show me other ways to activate is still greyed out.
I've disabled the NIC on this Hyper-V server and I still can not get the other way to activate to show up...
Anyone have any ideas? This computer is one of my AD servers so.. it being in notification mode kind of sucks.
