I need to find official information about downgrading windows server 2022. Is it possible to downgrade to version 2019, 2016 when I purchased a Windows 2022 server license from CSP.
Can anyone help me find that information from Microsoft?

    The actual downgrade terms in the Microsoft Customer Agreement, which is what most CSP customers sign:
