I have an exchange server.
I was hoping you could answer me a simple question.

I need to activate exchange, I have a few different license keys to try, if I put in the wrong one then will it disable any services or stop anything running like normal?


Thanks for your help

If you have purchased exchange then surely you KNOW what license key you should be using?

The licence key will be authenticated when you put it in, so if you get it wrong, you can try again without it causing any problems.

Neilsr, with Volume Licencing, you can often have a number of different product keys and not be sure which key matches up to the exact version that you installed from, so I think this is a legitimate question.

Thanks.


Being slightly unorganised I have just been given a bunch of license keys, but told some are for XP, some are for exchange and several other different things. I can't really find out which one is specifically for exchange, so it seems like it will be trial and error. I thought so too, but I was asked to make sure it doesn't do anything before trying.

Thanks for the response scriven_j

My point was that If you have volume licencing then you can log into the volume license portal at any point and download/check what keys you have for what products..
