Vista Business Activation Grace Period only 3 days instead of 30 days? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In an deployment testing environment I have setup a Windows Distribution Server, uploaded WDS client boot image and Vista Business (VLK) image.


    After applying the image to a client the grace period before automatic activation is only 3 days, not 30 days?! Why does this happen? Testing only within 3 days is too short, a sysprep /generalize reset the activation counter again to "3 days".


    What needs to be done to have the full activation grace period of 30 days?
