Hello,

We're currently experiencing a problem with a on-prem DC running windows server 2019 essentials and it's connected to a AZ AD in the cloud. The server has been shutting down once a week because of an executable "silsvc.exe"

error:

“This process C:\Windows\system32\silsvc.exe (REDACTED) has initiated the power off of computer REDACTED on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found

Reason Code: 0x2000c

Shutdown Type: power off

Comment: Licensing Compliance Service caused a shutdown. Please look at the events under Microsoft >Windows> Server Infrastructure Licensing > Operational for details.”

If anyone has any solutions to fix this problem, I would greatly appreciate it, I already know that the FSMOs all need to be on the 2019 essentials DC, but I need some further instructions (e.g. how to do that) to fix this problem.

Thank you.

    Is this a new problem? or has it been working for a while now? Are there other domain controllers present?
