Hello,

after the windows server 2022 Started to shutdown I realised I "forgot" to Activate it.

So I tried and there is an Error 50 which I cant get rid of, which follows after most of the default activation runs successfully. So I might haven't forgotten It but ignored the error after the xx activation while rolling out the licence keys.

So Winserver 2022 ServerStandardEvalCor

I wanted To Upgrade to ServerStandardCor but only ServerDatacenterCor is available.

That is our migrated main DC we moved from 2012R2.

How do I get it activated?

best regards

Fabian

    Converting an evaluation to full after domain controller promotion is not supported. Also converting an evaluation core install to full (last time I checked) seems to be impossible to do. The reseller should provide access to licensed install media where you could stand up a new one for replacement.
