I just set up a new VM server and with it I was given a 5 user 2012 cal

I loaded server 2012 on the server

How do I active the Server software with the CAL? since your not given a key?

Did you get a Server CAL and a 5 user license CAL or just a 5 user license CAL?  You need both in order to active the server software.  If you did not get a key, then my guess is you just have the licenses.  If it is an OEM copy of 2012, then the license may be affixed to the server housing and you need to get it from there.

It also depends on the host license type.  So the question is how is the VM hosted?  If the host does not have a 2012 Server license then you will need to get one.
