Recently I did a Search Server 2010 Express deployment. Everything went without a hitch. Preflight, Installation, configuration, and first few crawls all worked the first time. (As they should!)
After 48 hours I cycled back to check the status of the system and found an issue. Specifically in Central Administration > Review Problems and Solutions > All Reports I found under the Configuration Category “Trial period for this product is about to expire.“
Diving in for further detail I saw that the actual source of the error was that “The licensing information not available.” After a little bit of further researching I confirmed that to fix it all you have to do is:
- Go to “Central Admin” => Monitoring => “Review Rule Definitions”
- Click on “Trial period for this product is about to expire” rule under configuration
- Edit it
- Uncheck the “Enabled” checkbox.
