Im the lead tech in my small shop, and for the last 2 days no xp online activations are working. I call them in and they activated fine, but for whatever reason none will activate online. Any ideas?

Had exactly the same problem here yesterday & today.
I would assume that their activation severs are down
In the beginning there was the command line.

I don't think so. I get through with the link(s) contained in my reference post.

The system I was working on was a clean install of Windows.
I tried for a day and a half to activate online. No go.
Everything else worked fine as it was a fresh install.

Your article references Windows 2003 server.
No prompt to activate on every restart.
It just would not activate online.

Telephone activation worked fine.
I am glad someone else experienced this as well as I thought it was just me for some reason
In the beginning there was the command line.
