    Windows Web Server 2008 - Activation Problem

    Hello

    I downloaded the Windows Web Server 2008 from MSDN and installed it.
    Now i would like to active it - unfortunatly i get an error message:

    ---------------

    Windows Activation Error

    A problem occurred when Windows tried to activate. Error Code 0x8007232B.
    For a possible resolution, click More Information.
    Contact your system administratior or technical support department for
    assistance.

    More Information says -> Code: 0x8007232B, Description: DNS name does not
    exists.

    ---------------

    I checked the internet connection and DNS settings of my server, everything
    is working fine. I can open webpages in IE7 without any problem.

    Re: Windows Web Server 2008 - Activation Problem


    I found a very strange solution for my problem:

    I selected "Change product key" in the system panel and entered my
    MSDN-licence number again! After that the activation was working fine. I
    have no idea how this solution is related to the DNS error message.
