i have 2 servers running windows server 2019 (It is Activated) however, I'm looking at upgrading to windows server 2022 I'm just wondering will I need to buy a new activation key to activate windows server 2022 the reason I ask is that while I was taking a look at server 2022 setup I noticed there's an upgrade option where it will keep all the settings and files the same so would the license I used to activate windows server 2019 also carry over to activate the new windows server 2022 if I use the upgrade option

Windows Server 2019
Windows Server 2019
A Microsoft server operating system that supports enterprise-level management updated to data storage.

    Yes, that's correct, an new license is required whether you clean install or in-place upgrade to Server 2022
