    Hi, as the title already suggests: i lost my SBS2011 standard keys.
    made a photocopy of the covers - both gone.

    sadly my runnin installation got mad, its crashing - i cant virtualize fast enough, repairs wont work.

    i want to re-install fresh in vmware - how can i retrieve my keys from my 'running' sbs2011 ?
    can i use pico/nanokms alike things in case i cant retrieve ?

    thanks!

    Thanks Tito for the fast reply.
    By any chance you can answer me this:
    *) the change from hardware will be ok ?
    *) when i use the key i still need access to transfer from old system - will it still run with they key used twice ?
