Unless you already did, you may be able to rearm (extend) the evaluation period.
See e.g. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/32122.windows-server-extend-expired-eval...
Although that article is for Windows 2012, it should also work with 2016.

Are you running the Windows servers in evaluation mode, with the eval period having expired?

That only works for so long, I think 180 days total after that you need to reinstall
