Can you help me with my software licensing question?

I have a server running on windows web server 2008, SP2(64 bit). I want to upgrade it to windows server 2008 R2 Standard edition.

Do I need to buy a new windows server 2008 R2 Standard edition license? I could not find anything on the Microsoft website about supported free upgrades.


Yes Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 is a separate license and must be purchased. You can accomplish an upgrade from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2.
