If you try to run your VM R2 or R3, you will receive an information like below. Your VM license was expired on DEC 31, 2014 and it needs to renew.
How to verify:
System Administration > License Information .
If this shows 12/31/2014, you will need to load a new license file
Solution: You can use either step 1A or step 1B
Scroll down to the end of the page
System Administration > License Information > Load License file and prompt for the license file > Yes to synchronize
It is going to take a while to synchronize the DB . Once it is complete, you should see this
I tested with R2,R3 and R3 CU8. 🙂
Happy Daxing 🙂
