    You are absolutely right acer-5100. I was using Win11 ProWS instead of Win11 Pro. Made all the difference in the world. Got Nero, Kasperssky Internet security installed and running. Also installed the actual Intel i211 network adapter driver.

    I suggested Pro for a reason, given not always the switch happens properly when switching from server.

    In short, if you need to convert server to, say Enterprise, Do Server ---> Pro ---> Enterprise.

    Perhaps is easy to check if the conversion went fine

    Just right click on mypc icon ---> manage

    If you get PC Management you are on client

    If you get Server manager you are on server

    NO MATTER OF WHAT Winver or PC properties are saying.

    Hmm, so I guess someone can make a script to easily switch between server and client mode. @acer-5100 what are the exact steps?

    A script to issue two commands? Sure someone can do that, but that one is not me. There is a difference between providing relevant infos and spooning.

    Come on! Just reread what I wrote. I provided all the needed infos, while you were busy criticizing what I wrote.

    I thought you need to copy license files too.

    I just run slmgr.vbs -dlv

    that tells me everything I need to know. (client or server)

    No, it doesn't. I wasn't wasting my time explaining how to check if that was enough.
