Hello guys,

I have a question regarding the licensing for Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. How can I find out how many licenses I have left?

I tried to search the product key used on one virtual server and compare it with the documented licenses but no license key was found in the registry.  Any idea how to figure it out?

Thank you,

I would review how many installation you have versus how many licenses you've purchased.  Keep in mind that activations on the Microsoft website is now the amount of licenses you have just how many times you have activated/installed/reinstalled the OS
