  • how many seats is a particular VLM license good for?

    Hi,
    I have recently taken over the network administration for a smallish regional office of education, around 40 employees-80 machines. We have a volume license for Office 2007 Enterprise.

    About half are running Office 2003, the rest 2007. I have been asked when I am going to upgrade the rest, the problem is I have no documentation on how many seats were bought. I would hate to upgrade everybody only to find out we only have 20 licenses (or Less).

    Does anybody know how to determine the number of licenses are authorized for a volume license (by key or other means).

    Let me make it clear I do not want to exceed the number we have paid for. I am reluctant to deal directly with Microsoft or a reseller
    until I am sure that we are under our paid for limit.

    Sorry for the complex post, but I can't seem to find the info anywhere.

    Thanks
    Scott

    Should, IIRC, be on the eOpen web site if you have access -- if not you can ask for it without telling MS why you need it.

      Education sites have different VLK deals with MS depending on the Country you are in. I would suggest finding out who is the appropriate reseller to your educational area and talk to them. They will have copies of your licences.

        Now would be a good time to speak to your MS licencing people and build up a relationship.

        Else can you not trace down the original purchase order and determine from that what was bought.
