Activate License from Trial Skype for Business 2015 Server

    Question

  • Hi, 

    I had downloaded a trial version of Skype for Business 2015 Server (180 days evaluation) and install for my customer as POC. I had only 1 FrontEnd Server for all the users. After POC, customer decide to purchase and want to convert the POC server direct as production server.

    How can I perform the activation or insert license for the trial Skype for Business 2015 Server?

  • You have to run the server.msi file on the server with msiexec.exe /fvomus server.msi EVALTOFULL=1 /qb

    and enable-cscomputer afterwards.

    With Get-CsServerVersion, you should see the full version of the server.

    Welcome to our forum.

    In addition to above suggestion, please refer to the following link to upgrade Skype for business from trial version to Enterprise version or standard version.

    If there are any questions when we upgrade skype for business, we could phone to license vendor to get help.

  • Hi Wong, Holger,

    I have a sfb2015 installation that reports that the eval was expired. And front-end services didn't start.

    I have done 

    msiexec.exe /fvomus server.msi EVALTOFULL=1 /qb

    and

    enable-CsComputer

    on the Front-End and Edge Server.

    Services now starting correctly but

    get-CsServerVersion give me following information:

    Skype for Business Server 2015 (6.0.9319.0): The Evalkey was installed.

    Did this mean the eval is renewed ?

    cheers,

    Mark
