Have been working on a VM of Windows Server 2008 – along with SQL Server 2008 and SharePoint 2007 – and the base Windows product has been prompting me to “Activate”.
But – for some reason – I get an error when simply trying to activate
A problem occurred when Windows tried to activate. Error Code 0x8007232B.
When you click the “More Information” link, it mentions some problem related to DNS… But – my server (VM) can access the internet – I thought that’s all it needs ?
I really don’t know what’s happening – but here’s a resolution :
- Click ‘Change Product Key’
- Re-enter the product key from your initial installation (CD / ISO)
- Windows will then Activate immediately…
Who knows WHY or WHAT is going on – but that worked !
Thanks to Yogesh for the tip…
