After you run this command, wait for the message Command completed successfully in some cases it may take several hours!!! After that restart your server and make sure you have a full Standard edition installed. The command will look like this:. You can upgrade Windows Server edition the same way. Confirm the command, restart the server. After rebooting, make sure your Windows Server Eval edition is converted to full retail.

Maybe this will be fixed in the next Windows Server build …. Also, thank you. It appears to have worked for me virtual machine for eductional purposes. Would you expect the same procedure to work for Server ? Only after that you must reboot the server. Thanks for your comment. I updated the description in the article. Thank you very much, this saved a lot of work after a project was fully implemented over an evaluation version by a contractee and I got the job to activate it; somehow, this time, the Microsoft phone support was not able to find anyone who knew this solution, at least in time, and your article worked quite well.

I installed the datacenter core eval version Starting with version Thanks for the useful tips. Thanks very much for a very useful artical — just one thing I wanted to comment on — You mention above that a Windows domain contoller must be demoted first.

Same panick here at first. That is not supported! From elevated cmd prompt the installation of productkey was less then one hour. At first reboot of Domain Controller, the DC was incorrectly connected to private network instead of domain network. After gpupdate and a few 2x restarts everything seems fine again. Checked Winver. Many thanks for a very useful article. I was about to reinstall but your article saved me from all the wasted time that would have involved.

Thanks for this topic. I successfully applied this guide to an AD DS on Windows server without having the necessity to uninstall the role and demote the DC. No differences between a server with AD or not. It was a great joy for me! What about Domain controller? After reboot, install the ADDS role and promote server to a domain controller. Starting to update components… Starting to install product key… Finished installing product key. An error occurred while operating system components were being updated.

The upgrade cannot proceed. For more information, review the log file. Please help. Great article, big thanks! After a couple tries, de-activating the network card really did the trick. I was starting to feel uneasy thinking how it took 3 whole days for our software vendor to install their product and configure it fully, just to get stuck with the activation afterwards….

You can also specify the TCP port on which the activation service listens by default :. You can test network connectivity between your computer and the KMS server using the PowerShell command:. You can use the slmgr. The following command will check the activation status on the remote computer named nywsdx The connection credentials are specified in plain text:.

You can use the Slui. For example, to get a more detailed description of activation error 0xCF, use the following command:. First, you need to check the version and edition of Windows on your computer.

To do this, you can run the command:. In our example, we have Windows 10 Pro build 20H2 installed. Actually, if the installation media is not Retail but Volume, it is not required to execute slmgr. If a server cannot find KMS host, you can specify it using slmgr.

So, in my case with standalone server this was enough: slmgr. If you are activating Windows 7 or Windows 8 desktops the proper way to do this is to activate via your own KMS Server. However, I have seen servers need to be manually activated via KMS more often than not. But yes I agree with your last statement, seems kind of strange the way they activate with KMS.

It makes a easily sellable product that can work off i net in a closed network. The time bomb approach was probably a feature requested by the most irresponsible people.. Heck without a cac or a local net the device can be made useless..
