exhange license keys

i manage the eopen licenses for our company. i see we have licenses for exchange 2003 and 2007. i see product key for our windows 2003 and 2008 server. but i dont see any product keys for exchange. why is that? exchange doesn't require any serial # during the installation? and i dont have the cd for it...where can i download the software on microsoft site? direct link would be great.

    I recently went through the activation process of our Exchange 07 box and it required our Volume License agreement number this was after we made a purchase of the product through Software House Internation, after explaining to the gentleman that I had installed the trial version and was now ready to activate it and a bit of head pounding I called the activation line with our number and they instantly generated a key and told me it over the phone. I think thats something around the lines of what you will have to go through to activate your Exchange install...

    If I read it wrong.. sorry mate. :) good luck in any case!

    If you have access to it, it would be https://licensing.microsoft.com, at least that's where I go for volume licensing downloads. Product Key would be on the download page for Exchange 2007.

    If that doesn't help, there is a licensing hotline that you can call, the phone number should be listed on their site.

    Try:

    1. On the left navigation pane, click on "Product Downloads"
    2. From the drop down menu, select "Forefront Sec Exchange Svr" and then select the preferred language. Click "Search".
    3. Click on the Forefront Exchange Server link. The next page will display the set up key.

    Or you can call the following # to get product keys and they should generate a key for you. I've done this for a client and they generated an Exchange 2007 key for me after providing them with licensing information for the client.: 888.352.7140

    Well, with Exchange 2007, the key is integrated into the media. But the problem here is the media doesn't have SP1 integrated; or at lest the last time I tried it didn't. Just call up that #, get the VLK, download SP1, and use the SP1 bits to install Exchange 2007.

    Same advice for any product that doesn't show in the VLK section or the download page - phone Microsoft.
