Hi we have an SQL Server with a VLK.

We have some problem with the server and to start up the services.

I says in the log:
2017-04-25 10:01:05.92 Server SQL Server evaluation period has expired.
2017-04-25 10:01:05.92 Server SQL Server shutdown has been initiated

But that doesn't makes sense do to the fact that it is a volume license key we used.

is there anyway i can fix this?
