SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition with SP2 compatibility RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition with SP2 is compatible with Windows Server 2016 and even Windows Server 2019. But when I logged into Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center to download it I saw: “System Requirements

    Operating System:Windows Server® 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, 64-bit OS only”.

    Is this particular download not compatible with Windows Server 2016? How to get a proper download?

    Thank you,

    Leo

  • Hi lzlobins,

    According to  Microsoft official document, SQL Server 2016 is compatible with Windows Server 2016 and even Windows Server 2019. Please refer to Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server.
     
    Or you can install SQL server 2016 firstly, buy the SQL server 2016 standard key. using the key during the installation process then install the SQL server 2016 SP2 from the link that I offered above.

    The issue is occurred during buying SQL server license, I suggest that you can consult professionals in license area. Please call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist. For international customers, please use the Guide to Worldwide Microsoft Licensing Sites to find contact information in your locations. People there may help you.
