    Hello, Unfortunately, Microsoft has stopped selling product keys for Server 2012 R2. Also, Microsoft has ended support for Server 2012 R2 on October 10, 2023.It is recommended that you consider upgrading to a newer version of Windows Server, such as Windows Server 2019 or Windows Server 2016, and purchase a product key from Microsoft Store/an authorized reseller for that version to activate your system. Best Regards, Hania Lian
