windows server 2008 R2 Standard Build 7600 this copy of windows is not genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I run an IT business in Australia and have never seen this before. I built a new sever for a large Sydney company their IT Rep flew up to Brisbane and Installed the OS on the server. It was then my job to configure it, I installed Active service directory, DNS, DHCP, Exchange and Webserver (IIS) roles. After the finally Reboot it took a couple of hours to get to the CTRL+ALT+Del screen I logon as normal only to get screen stating "windows server 2008 R2 Standard Build 7600 this copy of windows is not genuine" bottom right.

    I noticed in system properties on a number of ocassions that it said it was Activated and thought everything was ok. Can someone tell me what this means and why?. I really don't want to reinstall because it would mean pointing fingers at their IT department but if they have broken the law then I will. I also don't want to do the work a second time.

    Regards
