Windows Activation Error (0x8007232B)

Code: 0x8007232B
Description: DNS name does not exist.

A brilliant example of an error message and unrelated solution.
I was trying to activate a virtual windows 2008 instance within hyper-v when i got this error.
Networking was correctly configured and the vm could see the physical network and browse the internet.

Turns out all it needed was for me to enter the same MAK key again via the 'change product key' button. The key was exactly as I'd used before. bizarre...
