Urgent Issue with SharePoint Service Pack 2

Microsoft has released an important news announcement regarding a bug with Service Pack 2 that causes the software to go into trial mode that will expire in 180 days after the service pack was installed. There is currently no hotfix for the problem and the best way to solve this issue is to go into SharePoint Central Administration and re-enter your product key.

At this point we are still recommending that customers upgrade to SP2 but to ensure that after their upgrade they re-enter the product key and ensure that the product is no longer in trial mode.

Read more at the SharePoint team blog and follow the detailed steps to re-enter your product key.
