I have an IIS server running on Windows 2008, it needs to connect to a SQL 2008 R2 on a remote machine.
Both the two servers are newly built and we have not received licenses for them and the 30 days evaluation period already expires.
When I test my website, it hangs there forever. I checked the eventlog on SQL server, there is a warning:
Event ID: 4105: Windows is in Notification period.
I don't know if I can still make connection even the license is ready, is there a way to find out or maybe there is some trick I can at least test out if the connection can be set up or not?
I am using Windows Authentication, a dedicated ID is created on the same domain, the ID is used to run the application pool on the IIS server and the ID is also added into the SQL server. Presumably it should be passed over to SQL server.
