Windows 2003 SBS Premium R2 Product Key Missing or Misunderstood
Posted on 2007-11-20
I arrived at a client yesterday and having always worked with standard or 64 bit versions with separate servers per application, this was a surprise to find Microsoft Windows 2003 SBS Prem. R2 installed without exchange running, it needed installing so I followed the instructions and put in the second CD, as the installation began I get a request to enter an MSExchange product key - it's nowhere to be found. Microsoft want to charge ridiculous prices for support and do not have the issue solved on their site - Apparently SBS prem comes with MSExchange and MSSQL and does not need any other product key then the Windows Install product key. has anyone had this issue before and found out how to overcome it?
