Hi,

I have installed Windows Server 2019 using evaluation copy from Microsoft but after successful installation server is shutting down after every 30-60 minutes from day 1 of installation.

As I understand that evaluation will be valid for 180 days then why it is shuting down from day one? Do I need to activate or enter evaluation key if yes then from where I can evaluation keys.

I have 5 servers.

support and response is highly appreciated.
