Extend Windows Server Evaluation Period

To Extend Windows Server Evaluation period for another 180 days, follow the below steps:

Run PowerShell as administrator

Run the below command

slmgr -rearm

Note: You can rearm for 6 times. In other words, you can have a Windows Server Evaluation Edition for 3 years. Just ensure you do it at the end of each 180-day trial period.

Click OK to close the window

Restart the system for changes to take effect

Verify Windows Server activation expiration

After you restart the system, verify the Windows Server time-based activation expiration and the rearm count.

Start PowerShell and run the below command.

slmgr -dlv

The Software Licensing Management Tool reports that the time-based activation expiration is 180 days, and the remaining Windows rearm count is 5. So we can extend it 5 more times.
