How to add a product key to an eval version of System Center 2012 Operations Manager

To set the product key, use the Set-SCOMLicense cmdlet in PowerShell. To use the Set-SCOMLicense cmdlet you need to use elevated permissions. (Run as Administrator).

1. Open PowerShell as an Administrator

2. Load the OperationsManager Module

import-module operationsmanager

3. Connect to your ManagementGroup

SCOMManagementGroupConnection

4. Use Set-SCOMLicense -ProductId “yourlicensekey“
Set-SCOMLicense -ProductId ‘C97A1C5E-6429-4F71-8B2D-3525E237BF62’

5. To check if changes were executed run Get-SCOMManagementGroup | ft skuforlicense, version, timeofexpiration –a

Note: This may require a reboot after running in order to register correctly.

    Thanks – other guides for achieving this said I must use New-SCOMManagementGroupConnection -ComputerName “localhost” -Credential (Get-Credential DOMAIN\Administrator)to connect to SCOM, but this resulted in the same exception I got when trying to open Operations MAnager.
