Windows 2019 essetials, workgroup server, weekly shutdown

Good morning,
I have installed a HP Server with Windows 2019 Essentials, every Friday server shutdown Itself for a License error. The server is installed as Workgroup server ed we haven't other server in the lan. There is 5 Windows 10 client connected to the server in the same Workgroup. WIndows 2019 Essentials can't be configured as workgroup server?
Thank you
Simone Secchiati

The Essentials server must be a root domain controller. The Essentials server must hold all the FSMO roles.

I knew wasn't possible to put "essential" in a lan whit other PDC but I thought was possible to configure the as workgroup server.
Ok, thanks a lot

You may be able to do it but during installation you'll need to cancel the essentials dashboard setup.

Can I uninstall essential dashboard now? and if is possible this operation can cause problem for the installed applications or shares?

Hello @SimoneSecchiati-0947

As a Windows Server Essentials, domain environment is recommended, it provides you more functions, such as domain credentials, Group Policy, to manage your clients and environment.

Reference article:

Windows WSE as workgroup
Does the 2019 Essentials must have to be a domain controller?
