2008 R2 to 2012 R2 upgrade

Last Modified: 2020-10-14
I had this question after viewing Server 2008 r2 to server 2012 upgrade.

I am running Server 2008 R2  standard SP1 and am trying to upgrade to 2012 R2 Standard (eval)  and am still getting the error.
This is a utility server and it would be easy to just do a clean install, but this is kind of practice for the upgrade of the production servers. So I'd like to resolve this at this level.
