I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

On-premise servers are perpetual and never expire.  They may not be eligible for upgrade path if not on a volume license with Software Assurance.

You can run it as long as you want.

Hi,

It can only expire if you have trial version..you have 120 days. You can check the Exchange version with the following command:

Get-ExchangeServer | fl *version*

If you have trial..you should add the key. If you have Standard or Enterprise version...your Exchange will never expire.

You also need to have the proper documentation that it is the company's. This can be in the Volume license portal or if you have the box/paperwork that came with the original packaging.  If you do not have any of this you cannot prove to Microsoft if ever audited that it is the company's.

The key is valid, but not having the proper paper work makes it invalid.  

There is no way to install a full version of exchange without entering a key.

Hi Member_2_6474242,

Did you leave a space between 'fl' and '*version*'?

If not sure, copy and paste this:

Get-ExchangeServer | FL *Version*

Open in new window

HI,

You have standard edition, it means that you do not have evaluation key so your version is correct.

And your version is Exchange 2010 SP3 that it is supported.
