    'Windows is in notification mode' message

    Hello,

    running this command:
    slmgr -xpr

    on my windows server 2008 standard x64 edition server results in this
    message: Windows in in notification mode

    I installed about 6 months ago with a KMS key but never activated...

    1. what is notification mode?

    2. is it part of RFM? If so what has been disabled?

    I have not noticed any features missing. I am not forced to log off after an
    hour etc... This is basically a testing server that is running ADDS,
    DHCP/DNS, and WDS (and a couple file shares), I had not activated because I
    expected to wipe out and setup this server several times.

    any input would be appreciated, I have not updated myself on server 2k8 much
    yet, and just heard about RFM today which is why I am now inquiring.

    Hello James,
    Notification Mode replaces RFM mode.
    Nothing has been disabled, there are no features missing.
    Thanks,

    Re: 'Windows is in notification mode' message

    Hi, thanks Darrell.

    what do you mean by 'Notification Mode replaces RFM mode'?

    did my server already go through an RFM period, then change to 'Notification
    Mode'? or is there no RFM mode in server 2k8, but only this Notification
    Mode? Is RFM only a Vista thing?

    Re: 'Windows is in notification mode' message

    Hello James,
    Notification replaces RFM mode.
    RFM mode was removed from Windows Vista in SP1 and is not in Windows Server
    2008.
    Rather than go into RFM mode, you now go into Notification mode if your
    machines goes OOG ( Out of Grace(expire the activation grace period)) or
    OOT ( Out of Tolerance(hardware changes that affect activation)).
    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

    Re: 'Windows is in notification mode' message

    Hi,

    I have a question in relation to that.

    First times, everythings was okay. I had a signal from Windows Vista saying my Windows Vista, which is not genuine, was going to be terminated or something like that.

    So I found this site, did everything there and actually was able to receive a message at last step, writing " slmgr -xpr " and have a new date.

    But now, it don't work. At last step, I get a message saying " Windows is in notification mode "

    What should I do you think? I don't know, I've really follow steps, and it do not work like it did before.

    Thank you very much for any help!

    Good day and thanks again

    Follow the below steps and see if it works for you:

    1. First of all type “services.msc” into search bar.
    2. After that find “Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider”
    3. Now you have to right-click it, and click “start”
    4. After that right-click it again, go to “properties”, and make sure it is set to “automatic”
    5. Now you need to find the service “Volume Shadow Service” and then click “start"

    Re: 'Windows is in notification mode' message

    Hi, Actually I have found another solution : just go to cmd.exe, open as admistrator and then type in : "slmgr -rearm" and restart computer.

    It give another delay, and it is repeatable to inifnity.

    I'll try your way too, thought. Thanks!
