Please look at my screenshot

I have recently run this command to update the windows server from ServerStandardEval to ServerStandard

DISM /online /ServerStandard:<edition ID> /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /AcceptEula

now i can see this on the command prompt . I cannot understand shall i manually restart the machine or shall I wait? Please notice the message on the bottom bar (i have highlighted with red arrow) of the command prompt.

    The last line in screenshot states

    Restart windows to complete this operation

    so I'd reboot it

    Hi @Bashabi Sarker ,

    You will be prompted (Y/N) to restart your Windows Server, it should look similar as in my provided screenshot below:


    The operation might actually be ready, you can try by selecting the PowerShell (ISE) window so that it's the currently active window, and then press any key so that it updates the results of your recently run command.
