Windows Server 2022 Standard running unlicensed

How much longer can I use the Server before it starts shutting down or being unusable?

Upgrade date: 11th April 22

From: Server 2022 Standard Evaluation

To: Server 2022 Standard (used DISM command)

Hi thanks for checking my question.

I recently upgraded some Windows Server OSs and have exhausted the purchased licenses. So I need another license and that's all well and good.

However, I'd like to know how much longer the (to-be-licensed-soon) server will last.

As per the above details.

Its been running fine for a week since the upgrade (from Eval).

Didn't find any reference to Server 22 when researching this. Mainly stuff about Server 2016 or 2012/R2, mentioned server shutdown etc. But no data on unlicensed Standard Server editions.

Thanks for your input and teaching me something!

    You can run

    slmgr /dlv

    then look for the time remaining.
