Licensing error in Exchange 5.5

I have exchange 5.5 and have 65 licenses with 57 in use. I need to get more to stay legal, where do I get the license and what do I do with them once I get them?

1 Solution
You cannot purchase Exchange 5.5 licenses any longer. You would have to purchase a higher version and use downgrade rights. I think Exchange 2007 CALs will downgrade that far, but you will need to check with Microsoft.

Exchange has always been licensed on the honour system. If you are looking in the license administrator then you can ignore what it says. When you buy Exchange CALs you simply get bits of paper. There are no codes to put in.
