We have a Dell R620 (256GB RAM, 2x3 SSD RAID 10) which has an older tower server as it's manual failover machine. Both are running Server 2016 DataCentre.
Budget for a 2nd Dell R620 with matching specs to the first has been approved.
Paying for a 3rd license of Server 2016 DataCentre is not approved.
I've read conflicting statements on the viability of using a bare metal recovery to move the os with it's license to the new hardware.
Links stating it can be done:
Is it at all possible?
