Just like previous versions of Operations Manager, all SCOM deployments are installed as “Evaluation Version” which is a 180 trial. You DON’T want to forget about this and have your production and lab deployments time-bomb on you down the road.
To see your current license, in PowerShell on a SCOM server:
Get-SCOMManagementGroup | ft skuforlicense, timeofexpiration -a
In order to set your license – you just need to run the Set-SCOMLicense cmdlet. This is documented here:
1. You need to get your license key, from whomever keeps that information for your company.
2. You MUST run this cmdlet in a PowerShell sessions launched “As an administrator” as this will need access to write to the registry.
Run this command ONE time on ANY management server…..
Set-SCOMLicense -ProductId '99999-99999-99999-99999-99999'
…… where you change the example key above to your key.
You should restart the PowerShell session, then run the command to get the license again.
(Note: You might have to restart you management server services or reboot the management server before you see this take effect)
