Hi,

I have ordered exchange under an eOpen agreement for the first time but the media has not arrived yet.  Can I use the media I got with technet and use my eopen VLK?

Does this apply to all MS products i.e. if I bought Server 2003 STD under eOpen could I use my technet media?

Thanks in advance,
Oli

You can try the TechNet media - just make sure you use the eOpen key.  The CDs are generally not important, but there are 3-5 kinds and the keys will only work with the appropriate kind.  For example, an OEM key will only work with OEM media.  A Retail key will only work with retail media.  I THINK The TechNet CDs are effectively retail media, so your VLK may not work - if it does, then you should be fine. Again, just use the right key.

Thanks leew,

I was hoping someone could confirm one way or the other if the technet was a retail version or a VLK version without me having to go thorugh part of the install.

Anyone got any idea?

Will make sure I use my eOpen key though!

You can use technet media - but not for very long. It is eval media. You will need to get the full retail media or volume media.

Volume media is different to everything else. So technet and retail keys will not work with volume media.

Do you have access to licensing.microsoft.com - you can download all of the media there as ISOs.

Simon.
