    since 130 day we are using win Server 2012 Standard “Evaluation Version” as Server + Domain Controller .
    We bought a Produkt key wanted Change from test Version key to legal key. It doesnt work and prompt: please run Windows Setup !!..
    On Microsoft site i read dc must be deinstalled , Change Produkt key and then reinstall DC !!!.
    It is teribble we have only 50 days and no solution yet. Because testversion is running only 180 days … Do you have any idea how to Change the product key ?

    Hi Hans,
    I have not checked that yet, but if a Microsoft site says that this can only be done while the machine is not a domain controller than thats the thing to do. Or.. add a second machine with the right key and such and promote that to a domain controller, transfer all the roles it has (FSMO roles, GC, DNS, DHCP perhaps..), and demote and remove the old box. (I know this is easier when running virtual machines than when running this on physical hardware).
