SharePoint 2013 and 2010 : The trial period for this product has expired

You cannot extend the trial. You can license the full product by getting a paid-for license key, then in Central Administration > Upgrade and Migration > Convert Farm License Type. Enter the  product key > Upgrade. Now the license and expiration date are held within the Configuration database, the only way to “extend” a trial is to rebuild the farm from scratch.

Or you can follow below unsupported method.

There is a way we can modifying your SQL Server databases. This is an unsupported method so make sure you backup your config database first before continuing.

To do so follow below steps > Open SQL server management studio > connect your SQL instance.
