Reliable system was so reliable, no one noticed its licence had expired... until it was too late

How about this workaround to get the business back on its feet again

1. Change the date back on the system to a point several years ago.

2. Reboot the server / restart application. Licence product will probably come up OK

3. Change the date back to the correct value.

4. Talk to vendor to get a longer term fix.

5. Talk to management about resolving the issue permanently.
