  • You can continue to use your server without activating it, but it will get quite annoying. :) So go to Connect (where you downloaded it from) and request a key.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • or when you (almost) reached the 30-day-limit you can do a re-arm:
    - Open on the WHS a command prompt (as administrator!)
    type this:

    slmgr.vbs -rearm


    You now should have another 30-days
    you can do this a 2nd time. So actually you don't really need a key for ~90 days ;-)
