SCOM 2012: inserire il codice di licenza per passare da eval a retail

Durante l’installazione di SCOM 2012 (o l’aggiornamento da una versione precedente) non viene richiesto il codice di licenza.

Uno degli aspetti più evidenti è l’impossibilitá di generare dei report, oltre al fatto che a fine periodo di valutazione il prodotto non funzionerà più.
