SCVMM2008 Trial Expired Early

    Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I've installed the SCVMM2008 trail a couple of days after it was released - the trial allows for 180 days before expiring. I was hoping that SCVMM08 will be released under January's action pack and the trial would be good until we get the license.

    It was installed just over two weeks ago and now I am receiving an error saying:

    The evaluation copy of System Center Virtual machine Manager has expired. ID:282.

    Now I can't manage my VM's.

    Can someone please explain and advise on how to resolve?

    Thanks.

  • Hi Matt,

     

    SCVMM does not have an "upgrade" basically you will need to uninstall using the "retain data" option then reinstall with your retail media.  You can also try downloading eval media again and seeing if you can use it to get another eval.
