Recently i have one of our user's machine reverted itself from Windows 10 Enterprise to Pro

I have checked the requirements needed in order for Windows 10 Pro machine getting upgraded to Enterprise via M365 E3 license. I can verify that the machine is

  1. AAD-Joined
  2. Windows 10 1803
  3. Valid M O365 E3 license assigned to the user

The current "error" i am getting is Windows 10 Pro activated with a digital license, Windows 10 Enterprise subscription is not valid.

screenshot of "error"

Not sure what else i need to check or do. Please help? Kind Regards

  • Does the user use another laptop computer joined to the AAD ? – yagmoth555 Jun 4 '19 at 12:47

For me running the following command has solved this exact issue:

cscript.exe c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /ipk AAAAA-BBBBB-CCCCC-DDDDD-EEEEE-FFFFF

As seen in: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/windows-10-enterprise-subscription-activation

  • AAD joined machines do get their activation from the AAD licensing. Did you assign a Windows Enterprise License to the user/device? – bjoster Jun 4 '19 at 13:13
  • Hi, sorry for the late response. the device have our Win 10 Pro volume licenses applied. Conversion from Pro to Ent is done via M365 E3 license via the O365 portal – Tommy0824 Jun 7 '19 at 1:13
  • What i have been doing so far for these problem devices is dis-join and re-join them to the domain. After that manually sync our local AD to AAD and wait for the device to be shown as registered in AAD – Tommy0824 Jun 7 '19 at 1:16
