Hi All,

 

i installed the 180 days evaluation version of SCCM 1902 today. i then upgraded it to the full license version as advised by this:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/servers/deploy/install/upgrade-an-evaluation-install-to-a...

 

However, after a reboot of the server, the console says: Evaluation Expired:

when i re-run the %path%\BIN\X64\setup.exe , the upgrade option is grayed out:

have you guys seen this issue before?

Thanks in advance everyone.

Hello @ShehzadUIT,

 

This is strange indeed, since this is a new installation, I suggest that you simply try reinstalling from scratch.


You may however also take a look at the following blog post:
ConfigMgr evaluation expired - what now?

 

Best regards,
Leon

@Leon Laude - I had to uninstall and reinstall the primary site server to fix the issue.

 

Thanks
