Upgrading Windows Server 2016 evaluation edition

If you're running the Windows Server 2016 evaluation edition you may wish to proceed to upgrade the installation to a paid-for version.

However when you try to do this you may see an error when you enter the key



This Windows image cannot upgrade to the edition of Windows that was specified. The upgrade cannot proceed.

The best way to upgrade is to use the DISM command as follows

DISM /online /Get-TargetEditions

And then use the edition in the following command

DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:XXXXXXX /AcceptEula
