Conversion problem from 2016 Standard Evaluation to 2016 Standard


A few weeks ago, we installed Windows 2016 servers in evaluation mode. Some of these servers will be converted to a production server and we acquired the licenses.

When trying to activate the license, the process of conversion from Standard Evaluation to Standard remains frozen at 10%.

I have browsed some forums that indicate that to do this manipulation, we need to have a KMS host on our network?

Have you ever had this problem ?

Try the DISM command in the following syntax

Dism /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /AcceptEula /ProductKey:12345-67890-12345-67890-12345

Finally after a reboot of the servers, the DISM command works

For those that follow; it usually takes 2 reboots after running the DISM command.
