Big Problem - Licensing Mistake Exchange 2007 System

Hy Community,
we got a Server System (2008 STD) on wich we installed Exchange 2007 from the Original DVD wich was delivered within the Server System.

The System provides 28 System Accounts including the same Amount of Mailboxes.

Now the managemend Console told me that my Exchange Server was not licensed correctly.

Afer searching the Licence Keys and contact the Manufacturer i got the Information that we have made an Open Licence Contract with Microsoft and we dont need to Input Licence Keys if we installed the Echange System with the Installation Files we could Download from the Microsoft Open Licence Portal...

...now im scared!

Does anybody know whats best to do now?
Deinstallation of Exchange 2007 and reinstall with the Open Licence Installation Files will give me some Days to reconfigure the Entire System!

Thanks in andvance for any advice...

Hi Blieswood,

First of all your Exchange WON'T stop working, you will be nagged in the EMC till you put in a valid key.

If you got Exchange 2007 on eOpen, when you login to the Volume Licensing Service Center and attempt to download Exchange 2007 you will see that your key is listed there.

Once you have installed your key, don't forget to restart the Microsoft Information Store for the changes to be applied.

For further reading on key installation, please see the following link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997621(EXCHG.140).aspx

Best of luck!
