Event id 1182 exchange is not a beta software RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    I have Exchange Server Enterprise 2003 but I did a virtualization of one of my exchange servers, every hour on the hour exactly, to shut down the Information Store,when I restarted the service but it always came with the following:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: MSExchangeIS
    Event Category: General
    Event ID: 1182
    Date:  1/11/2012
    Time:  3:50:18 PM
    User:  N/A
    Computer: EX00003
    Description:
    Thank you for your participation in the Microsoft Exchange Server beta program. Your license to use this beta version of the Microsoft Exchange Server software has expired. Contact Microsoft Corporation.

    I would like to point out that I did NOT install beta software on the original server. After the virtualization I have added this computer to the domain and I only changed the name and the SID of the server.  can anyone help me with this?

    I was looking at:HKLM-Software-Microsoft-Windows-CurrentVersion-Uninstallan entry and i have an entry that beginning with 9161

    Thank you for your help!!!!

  • I suggest you contact Microsoft support directly. The license related problem is critical and it can only be active/unactive by the phone support baseed on my experience.
