Windows Server 2019 Standard Retail Version

Copper Contributor

Is the retail version of Windows Server 2019 Standard downgradeable to Windows 2016 Standard?

in this post, a Microsoft Licensing Expert answered it:

Volume Licenses can be downgraded and you can get the media and keys for the previous two versions via the VL Portal.

Retail licenses have no downgrade rights.

OEM licenses have downgrade rights but you are on your own to find the proper media.
