    Can't perform in-place upgrade from Windows Server 2016 to Windows Server 2019


    When I run the Windows Server 2019 installer to upgrade from Windows Server 2019, the option for an in-place upgrade is greyed out. How can I perform an in-place upgrade?


    When I use this: dism /online /get-targeteditions

    I get this: (The current edition cannot be upgraded to any target editions).


    DISM says my current edition is ServerDatacenter.

    Windows Server 2019 RDS CAL for Windows Server 2016

    I recently purchased Windows Server RDS CAL from Microsoft Online site.

    When I purchased it I didn't know that it was for Windows Server 2019 and I have Windows Server 2016.

    When I tried to install Windows RDS CAL for 2019 into Windows Server 2016 it shows the license is not recognized and couldn't install.

    My questions are:

    1. Can't Windows RDS CAL for 2019 be installed in Windows Server 2016?

    2. Is there any way to replace RDS CAL from 2019 to 2016 ver?

    3. Can I get a refund for this?

    Thank you in advance.

    AD DS

    DNS

    Replication AD only from Primary to Secondary server.

    We have bought Windows Server 2019 Standard for two and we plan to upgrade both server,

    I have found lots of step to upgrade AD server for easy ways by adding the bootable Windows iso media and run adprep /forestprep.

    But I am worry If some thing else messup the configuration and AD itself.

    My Plan,

    1: Upgrade windows 2012 to Windows 2019

    2: After all done, I will start upgrade Windows 2008 R2 to Windows 2012 R2

    3. An then start to Upgrade to Windows 2019

    Question : Any step or prerequisite before i start upgrading ? (for example, AD might not working during installation or etc)

    Thanks
