Exchange 2013 License CALs. I just recived my license grant information what do I do now ??

I just recived my Exchange 2013 license CAL license grant e-mail ?  I loged into the Volume License Center and added the agreement and Authorization Numbers and it displayed under the Licenses tab that I have Exchange 2013 CALS.  So I selected "Download and Keys" tab expecting to download a key. I do not see my added license Key or CAL information.  What the heck am I doing wrong ?? Do I need to add the CALS to Exchange to make it work ?  I have built the server but not added the keys and want to move users to the server but I don't want to break them for the lack of Keys/CALs.

CALs do not have keys.  They are Client Access Licenses and give you the right to connect one user to Exchange.  You don't do anything with them other then print them out and file them away never to be seen again.  It's an honor system really.

You need the exchange server keys.  You have to purchase the server license as well as the CALs so if you do not see Exchange Server listed with keys under the downloads and keys section you probably didn't purchase it.  If you bought standard CALs you will use a Exchange Server Standard key, if you bought enterprise CALs you use an Enterprise Key (costs more for both Enterprise edition of the server and Enterprise Keys.)

This article will instruct you how to add the keys once you obtain them.

I have the exchange server fully licensed. The User CALs were just now received in and we did not see where to load them. You explanation is kinda what I expected but wanted to double check before we deploy in October.

Thanks for the help.
