How to add Microsoft Defender for Endpoint Server license to servers on Windows Server 2012 R2 and 2016.

¡Hello everyone!

The process of assigning the license to the servers with the Microsoft Defender for Endpoint Server is maintained as before?

It is not required to assign this license to the servers?, there is some technical reason why it is not possible?

This is because they can not be managed within the Microsoft Intune?

Please confirm, many customers want to be sure that the product purchased is the correct one for the solution.

Thanks a lot.

@johnyrestrepo Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

Yes, intune is not supported to manage windows server. Here is the article about the supported OS:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/fundamentals/supported-devices-browsers
So, there is no method to make it via intune.

If you want to get more information about adding Microsoft Defender for Endpoint Server license to servers on Windows Server 2012 R2 and 2016, it is suggested to contact Microsoft Defender for Endpoint support to get accurate help. Here is the support link:

Hope it will help.
