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.
