Jenny, sorry for the late response, yes I have reviewed my options and looks like we will have to purchase new licenses. The unfortunate thing was that I have under budgeted for my project and will need to secure more funds.

Thank you for your help.

Hi,
I'm afraid not. Normally they are perpetual licenses unless you bought the license and Software Assurance (SA). If you purchase SA then you automatically are entitled to new versions as they are released plus other rights for the duration of the agreement.
But kindly note there is a time limit for purchasing SA.  For example, the physical server most likely came with Server 2016 OEM and you can purchase SA on the license provided you do so within xx days.  SA would allow you to upgrade to Server 2019 if you want.

To better address your problem, you could call the VLSC and check details for the license you bought and the rights you would have.
VLSC contact:

Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.

Thanks,
Jenny
