Hi Team,

Some of my onsite engineers have downloaded and installed win10 evaluation from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-10-enterprise
We have already assigned win10 enterprise licenses to user using Microsoft 365 E3.
Now as checked device are not getting auto activated from Evaluation to win10 enterprise.

In our environment we have devices Azure ad joined and Hybrid Azure AD joined + Managed by Intune.

What will be best approach to activated windows 10 enterprise devices on these devices, without re installing win10 pro?

    It depends on your license and generally, they will have a generic Product Key and then connect them to the activation server or user will have to enroll their device and activate them.
    Take a look at the following articles:
