    Since Server 2019 Essentials has removed client back up, I like to upgrade from server 2012 essentials to 2016 Essentials with a SLP/slic 2.4 bios? Googled for hours; but there seems to be no such bird (found one for standard/datacenter). If someone can direct this poor soul, many thanks.

    So far no SLP keys for Server 2016 Essentials.

    edit: My mistake I was referring to Server 2019. Not sure about Server 2016 Essentials.

    Here is the link for Server 2016 SLP keys:

    Really looking for Essential due to client backup; which is present in 2012 and 2016; not in 2019. I guess I'm stuck in 2012, a good year to remember.

    I found a KMS key somewhere around here that worked for my testing.
    Then I just bought a license from MS for my long term use.
    Image is w/ the KMS key

    I know, but KMS_VL_ALL would simply have activated it.

    The OP seems to want to use the slic+cert+oem:slp key, don't know if it works for essentials, not seen an oem:slp key for it.
