In this post, support describes following procedure to renew the license. These steps (se bellow-copied from named post) basically describe how to enter the valid key and renew the license:

  • Open PowerShell as an administrator.
  • Load the OperationsManager module (import-module operationsmanager).
  • Connect to your management group (New-SCOMManagementGroupConnection).
  • Run the Set-SCOMLicense -ProductId "<yourlicensekey>“ command.
  • To check whether the changes were made, run the following command:  Get-SCOMManagementGroup | ft skuforlicense, version, timeofexpiration –a

    Unfortunately this will work only if you SCOM is still operating. In other words if the license has expired it will not work, because SCOM does not work. It will fail on exeuting commandlet New-SCOMManagementGroupConnection.
    To workaround this just jump over that step and Run the Set-SCOMLicense -ProductId "<yourlicensekey>“ command.
