I built a new Windows Server for myself recently, and didn’t bother to enter the activation key during the build process. I do this because of the fact that I might often build and rebuild a server before I’m happy with it. The end of the trial period came around and I attempted to activate it without thinking and got the 0x8007232B error below.
Ok – first thought was google that error – yup – found multiple people with the same problem all with many solutions. Then I recalled that I’d not entered my activation key. So I went back to the server, entered my valid activation key and retried the activation. Result was successful as you can see. After a reboot all was back to normal. No more nag screens.
