Upgrade Server 2012 Essentials to Server 2016 Std RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have server 2012 R2 Essentials installed. We have recently Purchased a 2019 Standard licence with a downgrade option to 2019 Essentials or 2016 Standard

    I have researched my options regarding a in place upgrade in various  articles but would like some further clarification on the specifics of our setup

    Given the current OEM licence bought with my Dell server and the licences available to me can I do an in place upgrade from 2012 Essentials to 2016 Standard. If not is there an additional step or requirement I need to complete before I can upgrade to Server 2016 Standard. I am trying to avoid a flat install from scratch to minimise the disruption to the users
