    We are running Win2003 on a test server that has become(big surprise...) a
    production server. The problem is that the evaluation period is about to
    expire. How do I update the server with our Volume License Product Key
    without reinstalling the entire OS?

  2. Shih,

    You can do an inplace upgrade if I am not mistaken. Just be aware by doing
    so you will have to reinstall all hot-fixes. Ensure you are upgrading like
    versions. In other words if you have Enterprise Trial, you need to upgrade
    to Enterprise, you cannot "downgrade".
