  • Exchange 2003 STD & Open License Program ..Help !

    Hello,
    We have Exchange Server 2003 STD edition & Windows Server 2003 Ent ediiton + Office XP & Office 2003 paper licenses from Microsoft. We are about to upgrade our existing exchange. We bought new hardware. We'll install Exchange 2003 STD on it.
    I opened Microsoft's paper license envolope today. I am in puzzle. It's showing me serial keys for all products except Exchange 2003 STD edition of which paper license is included in those envolopes but no serial key. I have no idea about it because our company done purchasing of this all earlier and i was not here at that moment. We are in to "Open License" program. Any body can tell me from where to aquire key for Exchange or any clue or same key of Office is for Exchange. I went through Agrrenment and all doc's but i found nothing. I also done visitng https://eopn.microsoft.com but seems like Microsoft's server for this service is busy.
    Anybody can give me solution? Anybody know about this lecensing stuff or anybody did installation of Exchange 2003 STD including opening envolope which contains paper license and keys ?

    Thanx and regards,
    Amey Abhyankar.

    Why don't you just call your local Microsoft rep? I really don't believe that you can expect us, from a 1000 miles away, to be able to solve your local licensing issues...

Well the issue is solved. Preety streight forward. That edition dont need serial key when you puchase it as a part of VLK's.

      Microsoft's licensing program has similarity in most continants. There regulations, rules remains the same for most countries. I thought somebody over here is knowledged person about "Microsoft Licensing" issues. Anyway. Microsoft has exams for this also...haha! They mean to earn lots of money from here and there. blah blah !!
