Quoted from mcuzz:
Anyone have any idea what will happen if I plug my commercial unit in online at home?
It depends. If I.T. hasn't deactivated the machine on their side yet, the machine may come up with a green light and be ready to rock.
I heard a story once from a guy who bought a commercial machine from a large operator once because the computer blew a power supply. The Operator had already swapped the machine into the location, and the broken machine had been sitting for several months. The guy brought the machine home, fixed it, and hooked it up to the internet. The machine came up green lighted, and stayed that way for the remainder of the year
Or, the machine may come up with an activation error, and your machine will effecctively be "bricked" until you call I.T. and get it de-registered.
Just depends - it's a crapshoot.
