Windows Server 2012 Standard Evaluation Edition Extension

I was recently reviving my Virtual Machine for some testing on SharePoint 2013. I found out that the windows server 2012 standard evaluation license is expired. 

Because of this, the VM was getting rebooted every hour. I found out that by running the below script I can stop this from happening.

slmgr.vbs -ato

But to my surprise it did not work. Because I believe it was already activated. Then I found one more command line script. 

slmgr.vbs -rearm

This has solved my issue. I can work on SP 2013 peacefully now ;)
