Activating Windows'es inside VitualBox

Two months passed since my virtual lab switched to VirtualBox. Last night we have a power outrage here, and this morning when I restart the Windows guests inside, they prompt me for activations. Why not? I've been quite satisfied with these guys in the last 60 days.

The KDC is still not connected to the Internet. I have to add a new NAT interface to it and do the activation. Fortunately, the DHCP inside the office network nicely provides IP address, correct DNS, and a gateway. I was afraid that since I can do nothing on the Windows server except for activating it, any mis-configuration means I have to re-create the guest. Turns out everything is fine, and I have these 2 guests working now.

Don't want to touch the other ones, at least not now.
