I have a customer with 2 Windows stand alone Windows 2008 R2 servers. One of them is not being used and I wanted to upgrade it to 2016 as a test to see how it goes before I do the server that is in use. They are identical Dell servers. I know there is no direct upgrade path to Windows server 2016 so I was going to do it in steps starting with 2012. I downloaded the evaluation version to use before going to 2016 but when I tun it it tells me that I cannot upgrade. Is this because it is an evaluation version?
Thanks in advance,
