how can I tell if a server is running SQL 2008 R2 trial or full version?

I put the product key in, and it says it did it.  It was suspiciously fast about it so how can one know for sure?

Run this query in SSMS:

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')

If it returns Evaluation, then it is trial else it would list the edition like Standard or Developer or Express like that..

Open SQL Management Studio and run this query.

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')

Execute it ...

It will list the version number, service pack and which edition it is.
