Convert/upgrade Storage Server 2012 to Server 2012 Standard

Hello All,

Is there a way to upgrade Storage Server 2012 to Server 2012 without re-installing the server?
It would be nice to upgrade the server without losing the settings.

I've tried the command DISM /online /Set-Edition:<edition ID> /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /AcceptEula
but that doesn't work.

Thanks

Theun

Windows Storage Server systems are provided by OEM so you will need to contact the computer manufacturer for detailed information.

as per my knowledge you can not upgrade/ demote Storage server to standard edition.
but still you can verify with System provider or MS

As stated Storage Server is an OEM OS designed and intended for Storage ONLY.  You cannot "upgrade" it because it was never intended to be upgraded.  You will have to do a clean install.
