Converting Windows Server 2019 Evaluation to Volume

Obtaining Evaluation version of Windows Server 2019 is possible directly via Microsoft Evaluation Center. But what to do with the already installed Evaluation version, if you obtain a license? You don’t need to do a reinstall using non-eval ISO. It is possible to convert Evaluation to Volume edition using these steps:


  1. Get a generic Volume key from Microsoft: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started/kmsclientkeys or prepare your own key.
  2. Launch Command prompt or PowerShell as Administrator.
  3. Enter the following command (applies for Windows Server 2019 Datacenter):
DISM /online /Set-edition:ServerDatacenter /ProductKey:WMDGN-G9PQG-XVVXX-R3X43-63DFG /AcceptEula

You should reboot the system after successful command application.
