Hi,

I bought Windows Server 2016 Essential from Windows store. I installed on my computer. Now I want to upgrade the computer to the new hardware. I installed windows server 2016 essential evaluation on the new hardware. I finished the Domain migration but i don't know how to move the license from the old server to the new server. Does anyone know how to do that?

Thank you.

    is there a way that I can find out what is my product key from my previous order? I can't find it.

    Try asking the seller for this info.
