Azure VM LIcensing Error

When you log in to the Windows Azure VM, you may receive a popup that says you need to configure the licensing server. If you don't configure the licensing server, you only have X days left of access.

You need to sign in to the Azure portal, download the RDP file for that virtual server, and only access the VM from that RDP. 

The RDP file has access to the server, even after the licensing server grace period ends.

Umbraco CMS Refresh

Umbraco is an Asp.Net based Content Management System. It has many pieces and configuration elements.

While I have been working on the Merchello Package, I've learned some ways to cycle Umbraco if something isn't working right.

  1. Touch Web.Config
  2. Reindex Examine Indexes via Back Office
  3. Delete files in \App_Data\Temp
  4. Republish content node or entire content tree.
