Exchange 2013 change to VL installl?

We have an Exchange 2013 server currently running on trial mode, the server is fully configured and is close to be in production. I was waiting for keys from our license team but they advised that we have a volume license for this and this does not require keys. I presume there is a VL media of Exchange 2013 my question is can i just run through the installation/update with this media to convert to a VL install or do i have to wipe and start again?

you need to find out if you have to put in a MAK or if KMS is correctly configured
if KMS is present, exchange should find the KMS server and automatically activate
shouldn't have to change media or reinstall

The above answer is wrong. There are no KMS or MAK keys for Exchange 2013.

There is no such thing as a VL key for Exchange 2013 either.

There are only two keys around for Exchange 2013, one for standard and one for Enterprise. Everyone has the same keys.

The Exchange team only release one set of installation files - the cumulative updates. You can take the latest CU and use it to install a fresh Exchange server, then enter your key.
