    Every 3 hour my server reboot and write error in the error log :


    License Activation (slui.exe) failed with the following error code:
    Command-line arguments:


    It is strange, because microsoft license for Hyper-V server host is free .

  • Does the Hyper-V Server have access to the internet?  True, there is no license cost, but that does not mean there is no activation required.  This is similar to the evaluation copy of Windows Server.  There is no license cost to use it, but if the system does not have access to the internet within the first ten days after it is installed, it will reboot on a regular basis.  Making a connection to the internet long enough to effect the activation takes care of it.

  • I checked my internet connection, and everything is ok(i ping random internet address).

    My server worked without problem two months. After these two moths it start to reboot every 3 hours.

  • Hi Angel,

    Is the issue still happening?

    I haven't seen this phenomenon before and not able to find any related information.

    How about other devices in your environment, how are they activated?

    Best Regards,

  • What is strange is that when I search for the error code you list (0x8007139F), the results appear to be related to Windows Defender. Are you running some sort of malware detection software on your system? Have you disabled Windows Defender? I have no idea if it is related to this, but since the error code is related to that, I would see if there is anything around that.
