Windows Server 2019 Essentials shutting down every week problem.

Dear Microsoft!

We have a problem with Microsoft Server 2019 Essential. Every monday morning the server is shutting down at 6:45 AM.

We have 1 domain and 4 virtual machine on it. What can we do? Theoretically we only use 1 domain.

Thanks for help!

Where is the hypervisor in this configuration?

The server licensing rights allow you to install an instance of Essentials on your physical server to run the Hyper-V role (with none of the other roles and features of the Essentials Experience installed), and a second instance of Essentials as a virtual machine (VM) on that same server with all the Essentials Experience roles and features.

Hello!

I copied the system log:

The process C:\Windows\system32\silsvc.exe (servername) has initiated the shutdown of computer Servername on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found
Reason Code: 0x2000c
Shutdown Type: shutdown
Comment: Licensing Compliance Service caused a shutdown. Please look at the events under Microsoft > Windows > Server Infrastructure Licensing > Operational for details.

This is the problem, but I dont know what is the solution. :(

Sounds like you may have added hyper-v role and four VMs? This is a license violation.

How much VMs can we use? Only once?

The server licensing rights allow you to install an instance of Essentials on your physical server to run the Hyper-V role (with none of the other roles and features of the Essentials Experience installed), and a second single instance of Essentials as a virtual machine (VM) on that same server with all the Essentials Experience roles and features.

Thanks for the help! We have some user limit issues that caused the problem. We fix it, and today the problem is gone!

We think about it, and maybe we need to upgrade a higher version of Server 2019.

Can we do it without paying full price for a larger version? Thx for the reply! Have a nice week!

Glad to hear issue is sorted out. Unfortunately there isn't "upgrade" pricing for server operating systems.
