Over the summer I’ve planned to revamp my CIS2230 System Admin course to include more Windows specific examples. I received a Windows 7 key from my department head in accordance with our college’s MSDN membership. I get Windows installed and type in the key and everything is fine for several months.
Last week I opened up my Windows 7 vm image and started working on labs and presentation notes only to find that my copy is somehow no longer valid.
Oh well, looks like my new Windows lecture will consist of, “Don’t use Windows on mission critical systems because you don’t want your server to stop working because of bad licensing code”
