Guest OS 2016 from eval to full RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I have windows server 2012 host with a 2016 Evaluation guest that has been over

    By trying to enter a license key with:

    slmgr /ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

    i'm getting an error:

    Error: 0xC004F069 On a computer running Microsoft Windows non-core edition, run 'slui.exe 0x2a 0xC004F069' to display the error text

    If i do:

    dism /online /Get-TargetEditions

    Editions that can be upgraded to:

    Target Edition : ServerStandard
    Target Edition : ServerDatacenter

    then i do:

    dism /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx /AcceptEULA

    the process stuck for while on:

    Removing package Microsoft-Windows-ServerStandardEvalEdition~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.14393.0
    [=====                      10.0%                          ]

    until the virtual machine is going shutdown in an hour because of evaluation period been over

    By trying to extend an evaluation period:

    Error: 0xC004FE00 On a computer running Microsoft Windows non-core edition, run 'slui.exe 0x2a 0xC004FE00' to display the error text

    Kindly suggest the right way to activate a guest system

    Thank you
