Several Windows Server Essentials 2019

Andreas Sigmund 21 Reputation points


I need three virtualized servers for a small network. One of the servers should be the DC.

Can I install 3x Windows Server Essentials if only one of them is the domain controller?

If so, where can I find this license information?

Many thanks for your help!

    I think you're Ok, as long as it isn't a domain controller.
    Windows Server 2019 Essentials has the same licensing and technical characteristics as its predecessor, Windows Server 2016 Essentials. If configured as a Domain Controller, Windows Server 2019 Essentials must be the only Domain Controller, must run all Flexible Single Master Operations (FSMO) roles, and cannot have two-way trusts with other Active Directory domains.
