Hi,

We have recently built a Windows Server 2012 R2 and activated the license and joined our domain.

It has been pointed out to us that we are not licensed for R2 so we now have downgrade it to Windows Server 2012 to which we are licensed.

Is there a way to downgrade without having to reinstalling the OS?

Many thanks.
