SCOM 2012 - Install Product Key

You may have noticed that when you did the product install of SCOM 2012 you were not prompted to add a license key. And as you have been looking around for it, you discover that you can't find it in About which is usually the first place I look. In About you see that you are running the (Eval) or evaluation version.

With SCOM 2012 they have moved the license key install to their Operations Manager Shell component. To install a valid license key open Operations Manager Shell.
Start > All Programs > Microsoft System Center 2012 > Operations Manager Shell

Once Operations Manger Shell is up enter the following command:
     Set-SCOMLicense -ProductId "insertyourlicensekeyhere“

You will be prompted to confirm the action, just type Y and hit Enter

Once you return to a command prompt close Operations Manger Shell and restart the server.

Now when you look at About you will see (Retail)

Additionally you can confirm this by pulling up Operations Manager Shell again and running the following command:
     Get-SCOMManagementGroup | ft skuforlicense, version, timeofexpiration –a

You will get confirmation that the license is installed correctly and it should give you an expiration date.
