Hyper-v 2019 Guest In-Place upgrade 2012R2 to 2019 Standard

AndiS 20 Reputation points

Hello, we have Hyper-V with Server 2019 Datacenter.

We still have some guest Server 2012r2 standard.

Is it possible to make a in place upgrade for the guests to Server 2019 Standard.

It just runs Fileserver and SQL 2014+2017 on the guests.

Thanks for Your feedback

    An in-place upgrade using evaluation media is not possible so make sure to used licensed installation media.
