    You don't need to post the same question in two threads. Also, if you had read through this thread you would have found the answer you are looking for! Anyway I've already given it to you in the other thread. :)

    Don't think it matters if you've activated Windows or not, but I would activate the operating system first.

    Don't know if the procedure works "per user". I've only done it "per device".

    Great work-around :) I have the following questions:

    1- Does anyone know of any free SSL certificate that goes well with server 2008 R2 and this contract #?
    2- Would be great to know if "per user" works.
    3- Does it matter if I select 200 or 300 "per device" licenses to be safe?
    4- What is this contract 6#5#6#5#7#9#2? Is it an educational instituation number?
    5- Should it be safe to update Windows with new service packs?

    Thanks for the feedback "100". I have been on StartSSL before and I don't know where I dropped it as it was way too complicated - compared to easy GoDaddy export. Is there a guide on how to do this from StartSSL?

    Thanks

    OK it finally worked. But could this really be so easy ?
    I expect problems when the server is calling home.

    And a bit of reading would clear the confusion... are most users too lazy these days?

    Does this solution work for Windows 2012 server as well or is there another method for that?

    Thanks

    How do you know how days are left with server licensing?

    I have one server that still shows 30 days left after license install. Do licenses kick in after the trial is ended?

    Using Administrator CMD I use:
    wmic /namespace:\\root\CIMV2\TerminalServices PATH Win32_TerminalServiceSetting WHERE (__CLASS !="") CALL GetGracePeriodDays

    thanks

    How so? I got e-mail from them that give me decline and when checking their terms it says it MUST NOT be for commercial purposes.

    So, what is the mechanism behind the CAL license activation? What is the other agreement and how come it's still working? Also, is this method tested to work on Windows 2012 server?

    More importantly, would the Windows 2008 R2 Server stop working for CAL licenses all a sudden due to an update?
