I need Windows server standard 2003 with Service Pack 2 (volume licesnse version)

P2V a 2003 server and now need to reenter the volume license Key.

One  way is to repair this OEM version by booting with a Volume license version of windows server standard 2003 with service pack 2 and select Repair. At that time I would be able to enter the Volume License Key, which I have it.

Unfortunately, you must obtain media legally.  If you have a volume license for it, contact Microsoft.  They may be able to get you a copy.  Unfortunately, 2003 is 11 years old and while technically still supported until next year, it's a dying product.  Search your existing servers for an ISO or contact MS.  We cannot share it with you if we have it.

If you have a volume license, why not just log on to the MSDN site to download the ISO?

this OEM version OEM versions live and die on the hardware they were activated on. You will have to use your VL media which you say you DONT have.. when you purchased a VL agreement and the software you were either given a link (downloadable copy) or a physical disk.. time to go hunting.

I have been hunting. No where to be found. I was hopping someone had downloaded and could share it.

Sorry, that is not something the license agreement permits.  If you owned a volume license, sign in to the Volume License Service Center (VLSC) and see if the download is still available for you (I doubt it, but you can try).  The only other alternative to locating your copy is to contact Microsoft's Volume Licensing groups and see if there's any way they can find you the ISO or media for you to purchase.
