Client has a production server running Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials. Unfortunately, regional/language settings are set to English (United States) but should be English (United Kingdom). Are we able to change these settings without causing issues with the server, it's software and clients?
If it is possible, are there any step by step guides?

It depends on what you have installed in the server. Don't forget that it can change the way a application deal with numbers and dates.

Thanks for your prompt response.

I will review the applications and see what impact this change will have.

From an operating system (i.e. Domain controller, DNS, IIS etc) and client access viewpoint, I assume that the change in language is achievable and will not cause any issues?

I look forward to hearing from you.

That's right. I'm working in a company that has servers around the world and in each country with regional settings specific for the respective country and that isn't an issue.
Some applications has intelligence enough to deal with different regional settings but in general isn't the rule.

The experts answer did put my mind at rest that this could be achieved but I was also hoping to receive guidance on what steps to take. Found the following link  http://www.win2012workstation.com/installing-language-packs/ . Whilst not meeting my requirements exactly, it gave me enough to go on. Regards
