Hi All,
   Im planning to install Exchange 2013 enterprise version, when I run the setup its was failing. someone advised me to Install Exchange 2013 CU2 as its a full Exchange installation,  after the installation I noticed that the version is Standard, I was wondering how to deploy CU 2 or CU 3 as enterprise version.

Exchange 2013 will be showing as Standard Edition after fresh installation because it will be in trial period. You need to enter the Product Key to make it a licensed server. Based on the Product Key you entered, Exchange will determine whether the software is Enterprise or Standard version.


Enterprise Edition supports up to 100 Mailbox Databases on a server and to enable this, you should have Exchange Server 2013 RTM Cumulative Update 2.
