what is the grace period for Windows Server 2019 Standard

Harigaran A 20 Reputation points

I checked the license details of the virtual machine after cloning using the 'slmgr /dlv' command, but I could not obtain information about the grace period.

If I do not perform license authentication on the above OS, how many days will the grace period be?

    This evaluation edition expires in 180 days.

    Evaluation versions of Windows Server must activate over the internet in the first 10 days to avoid automatic shutdown.

    More details please refer to this link:
