We are trying to validate the ownership of a server license on one of our servers. It was installed by a vendor who is no longer around. We've gone back and matched our volume licensing with old invoices, but can't find this one. Is there a way to find out who bought a license by tracking the product key?

Trying to match the product key to an agreement number in volume licensing. I was able to validate our licensing through the volume licensing support call center at 866-230-0560, but it turns out they couldn't track a product key back to a specific agreement. We were able to confirm that we have the correct number of licenses per product. Ken, I'll award you because you made me pick up the phone. It took 2 more calls to get to the right place but I did eventually. Thanks all.
