SharePoint SP2 Bug – 180 Day Countdown

Microsoft recently released the latest service pack for SharePoint 2007 (SP2) which does provide a number of enhancements.  However, in their process of developing this Service Pack they happened to overlook the fact that SP2 resets your SharePoint Installation into a Trial Mode.  What does this mean, basically you have 180 days after installing SP2 to reactivate your SharePoint install as a non-trial version or your SharePoint instance will stop working.  Currently there are no automatic hot fixes for this, but you can re-enter your Product ID on the Convert License Type page which will resolve this issue.

Here is the official statement on the SharePoint blog.
