    Whooops, sorry for posting in the wrong sub section ! (admin informed)

    Looks like there is no specific ISO of Essentials, but you use indeed Datacenter with an Essential key...only availabel to OEMs...hum...

    Roles missing as well it seems ? :S

    I still miss the Windows Essential Dashboard. Is there any replacement for it in 2022??

    Well, probably worth a try, if it does not bring additionally "hickups" inside of a productive environment. :p

    Is that a problem?
    Install windwos server 2011 and you get the same Windows Essential, only lighter and more productive.

    Well, the "classic" Essentials was (is) quite a simple and quick way to set up and work with an complete environment. :)

    p.s.
    If I download the 2022 Server LTSC VL now, would there be any standard Essential License Keys out there already ?

    Because I got told installing "Server 2022 Standard" using a Essentials key, will still show Server 2022 Standard inside of Windows... ?!

    But what are the chances in todays world, that a "simple" future kb update will mess with your whole network, after using this "workaround".
