Is it possible to update windows server 2019 essentials to server 2019 standard? If so, do you have to buy a standard license or is there some type of upgrade license?
Thank you

Hi @AdmonXtratic-7977,

You can convert Windows Server 2019 Essentials (retail) to Windows Server 2019 Standard (retail), you will need to purchase a Windows Server 2019 Standard license.

More information about the license conversion can be found on the link below:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started/installation-and-upgrade#license-conversion-1

(Same applies to Windows Server 2019)
