Exchange 2003 licensing information?

I recently upgraded a windows 2000 server with Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003.  Eventually I will upgrade the OS to 2003.  But for now it's staying as is...

My question is... I upgraded the Exchange server to 2003 without having to enter any of the information from my Software assurance agreement.  Is it going to all the sudden stop working because I haven't entered it.  I have it so I'd like to enter it if need be and I thought it was, but it's running without it  so I don't want to fix something that isn't broke.  I have 130 users if that makes any kind of a difference and the Exchange server is up to date on service packs.

Thanks!

If you used the volume media then you don't have to enter anything. You only need to enter information if you are using retail editions.

So, just to confirm, it will not track it like it does for my terminal server?  I thought I heard/read that it was a bigger deal with Exchange 2003.

Thanks again!

Nope.
For most administrators there are only two things that they have to worry about on licensing - Terminal Services and Small Business Server. No other mainstream product is hard protected by licensing.
