How do you make Windows7 and Windows Server VMS not want to be re-activated?
I have a computer lab full of machines that start up a Windows XP, Windows 7, or Windows Server2008 VM for each student, depending on what they select (Yes I have enough licensing to cover all of the them). Each student has their own personal VM for whichever OS they choose.
For the Windows XP VM, I was able to activate it before I cloned it, and it all stays validated.
For windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, it clones fine, but asks to be re-activated. Is there a way to get around this? Is this actually a problem if they all auto-activate?
As far as cloning goes, all the VMs are created identically, and they all use the exact same vdi (VirtualBox's hard drive format), so the HDD is the same for each one.
