Windows Server 2012 Standard - Moving License and activation key to new hardware RRS feed

  • Pergunta

  • Hi Team

    We would like to move our windows server 2012 standard edition license to a new hardware, as our old hardware is giving up. And the Old IT Administrator has no details regarding the License. I have recently joined the company and we have no documentation for this server. If anyone could guide me in the right direction please.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    It depends on the type of license you buy specifically.

     

    If OEM the license would be tied to hardware.

    If it is not an OEM version, you can simply remove the OS from old hardware and re-install system in new hardware and re-active it using previous active key/license. Manually enter it or, via phone (run “slui 4” to open telephone activation wizard).

     

    If you need a definite answer you'd better contact your reseller or a trained Microsoft licensing specialist regarding your licensing questions.

     

    Please contact the Microsoft Activation Center.

     

    Best Regards,

    Farena
