Hi @Randy Clark,
Yes, you will need a SQL Server 2019 license key to install and activate SQL Server 2019 on your server. A license key for a different version, such as SQL Server 2022, will not work for SQL Server 2019.
For detailed information about the license issue, you can call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist. Or you can go to Volume Licensing Service Center support. Please choose region/language and choose to call or have web.
