Hello guys, hoping maybe someone could help me. I have a Dell NAS that came with "Windows Server Storage 2012 R2" Was trying to find a way to download install media or find an iso . Dell says they dont have anything available anymore and to contact Microsoft. The only thing I was able to find with microsoft was the https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=34592 . This is not the R2 version so it will not work. Dell said to try the Evaluation version of Windows Server 2012 R2 and see if we can activate from there and that did not work as well. Is there anywhere that is not sketch to still get the Server Storage 2012 R2?

    If you happen to have a VS subscription then it is still available, afraid there are no public downloads.

    @Dave Patrick Thank you so much for the info. By chance what is a VS subscription? The Google's is telling me a Visual Studio Sub? I do have a VLSC account but it doesn't show up there.
