Upgrading from Windows Server 2008 R2 to Windows Server 2016 Essentials RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I own a small office with 20 desktop workstations connected to a Windows Server 2008 R2. The server is on a Workgroup instead of a domain and doesn't have active directory running or exchange. We primarily use it as a file server with a couple of programs installed on the server and a SQL database.

    We recently purchased Windows Server 2016 Essentials and I was wondering if we upgrade the Server to 2016 Essentials, will we have to re-install some of the programs we currently have installed and setup all the Shares and permissions? 

    Or should it be pretty straight forward with little to no configuration needed?
