Check Expiry Date of SQL Server Evaluation Version

SQL Server Evaluation Version is available free of cost for evaluating the Server. It is a trial version. It is valid for limited time (180 Days). The expiry date is always 180 days from the initial installation Date. The following query will return the expiry date of SQL Server Evaluation Version:

SELECT @@SERVERNAME AS Server_Name, Create_Date AS Installation_Date, 
ServerProperty('EDITION') AS [Version], DATEADD(DD, 180, Create_Date) AS [EXPIRY DATE]
FROM SYS.SERVER_PRINCIPALS 
WHERE SID = 0X010100000000000512000000

SID 0X010100000000000512000000 is associated with login 'NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM' and it is created at the time of installation only.
