HP ProLiant DL380 G6 and Windows Server OS

Hi

I'm going to buy an used HP ProLiant DL380 G6 Server and I found it seems to be compatible only with Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012 and with Windows Small Business Server 2011.

I'm using a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard OS in the old server I'm going to change with the new: can I use this license in the new server?

I found a this Windows Server 2012 license on Amazon: is it good for my new server?

Thank's a lot,

Francesco

Hi EsiKhoob

I don't want to transfer the hard disk or system image to the new hardware but i want to install the software in the new hardware and after that to uninstall it from the old hardware.

Windows Server 2008 R2 will work fine with a DL380 G6 Server. It is fully supported by HP. The latest Windows Server OS supported on G6 is Windows 2012. From my experience Windows Server 2012 R2 will work fine as well, just make sure you are using the latest firmware versions available

Re: HP ProLiant DL380 G6 and Windows Server OS

Is it right that I can downgrade Windows Server 2016 license to Windows server 2012 only if I buy the "standard" edition?
