  • A few other users also had this problem with the 120 day trial version. It's not clear to me why this happens. The only way to recover is probably to do a server reinstall and then use Phone activation if it still asks you to activate. If you do a clean install without entering the key you will be able to use the server for 30 days, and also then you can use Phone activation.

     

    If you search the forum for "120 expired" you will find you're not alone.

  • Yes I had seen a few others with a similar problem. But all the replies did not provide any "simple"  and quick fix
    answer
    I have gone down the route of a server reinstall

    will report the outcome

    Thank for your reply
