Adding Server 2008 Foundation to an existing enterprise domain


  • We have created a 500+ user domain and one of our vendor servers is running independently with Server 2008 Foundation. Tried to add this server to the domain and I get the EULA error

    Is it possible to change the product key on that foundation box to one from our MS Volume Licensing agreement?

  • No it´s not possible but an "In-place"  works

    from technet:

     "Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation supports the following upgrade scenario: “In-place” upgrade of Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation to Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard."
