System Information reports that the operating system is pending activation for limited and guest users
This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Guest or Limited users who view the the System Information summary details may always see the Activation Status as "Activation pending (30 days remaining)" on systems that are already activated.
Because only an Administrator can query the activation status, Limited or Guest users always receive the default 30-day grace period information.
This behavior is by design.
