    If you purchase a Windows Server 2016 essentials License with downgrade rights to 2012 r2...


    We have a dell server that was purchased with Server 2016 essentials but due to some old accounting software we downgraded to Server 2012 r2. We have recently moved on from that software and would like to upgrade back up to 2016. Is this just as simple as upgrade in place to OS and the key already works as a 2016 key or do you give up your rights to 2016 once you downgrade to 2012r2?

    :)

    Questions about Windows Server 2016 and 2012 R2

    @Rehmanpa Just to clarify about what you may have heard about 2012 R2 not needing to pay for CALS like 2016, that only applies to 2012 Essentials and 2012 R2 Essentials. You are limited on number of clients, though.
