I need to upgrade Exchange 2010 STD to 2010 ENT in-place - no unique key provided by MS

The existing Exchange server is 2010 Standard. I need the additional mail stores afforded by Enterprise. I ordered the 2013 Enterprise however the MC VLSC site indicates no KEY is required.

Several MVP sites indicate that the upgrade can be accomplished without a re-install running Set-ExchangeServer -Identity <SERVER NAME> -ProductKey <PRODUCT KEY>  where <SERVER NAME> is my server name and <PRODUCT KEY> is the Product Key of the Enterprise Edition of Exchange Server.

How is this accomplished without an Exchange Enterprise product key listed at the MS VLSC site?

I'm befuddled.

You need Enterprise key for 2010 not 2013. Then just apply the key and it will change to enterprise version, remember there is no role back option. I suggest you to call MS for Key issue.

Excellent the only key I needed was the generic key from my VLSC site (yes I did call MS). Thanks!
