MOSS: Service Pack 2 activates 180-day expiration

According to Twitter and the Microsoft SharePoint Team Blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/sharepoint/archive/2009/05/21/attention-important-information-on-service-pack-2.aspx ):

“During the installation of SP2, a product expiration date is improperly activated. This means SharePoint will expire as though it was a trial installation 180 days after SP2 is deployed. The activation of the expiration date will not affect the normal function of SharePoint up until the expiration date passes. Furthermore, product expiration 180 days after SP2 installation will not affect customer’s data, configuration or application code but will render SharePoint inaccessible for end-users.”

There is a hotfix as well as a workaround for this, all on the MS SP Blog link above.
