updating to server 2012 R2 essentials RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I have a OEM version of windows server 2012 essentials can I do a clean install off the server 2012 R2 essentials and use the same license code or do I need to pay for an upgrade and then do a clean install.

  • 2012 R2, like any R2 server version is a new version and therefore a new license (and code) must be purchased. You can then choose to migrate or do a clean install as you feel best suits your environment.
