License question on moving 2012 server to new machine via bare metal restoral after first server failed.

Hi, One of my client's servers went underwater.
I have a good backup and would like to purchase a new server and do a bare metal restoral.
My question is in regards to licensing.

Do I need to purchase another license of the server operating system (Windows Server Essentials 2012r2) or can i just buy a server without an OS, do the restoral, and not worry about it?

The initial server was purchased from Dell, as will the replacement.

Thanks.
