  • Pairing License key with Media

    Need to reinstall SBS2003...

    I can easily get the license key using something like Magical Jelly Bean, but is there any way I can confirm what edition of SBS it is so I can buy the Media only kit?

    I.e Retail/OEM/Volume etc.

    I know its a fully licensed SBS becuase I installed it, but lost the discs

    You could look for the original order or ask the people you purchased it from.
    Usually OEM will have the stickers already on the box which leaves the other options. If it is Volume then you should have confirmation from MS somewhere. If retail then I guess just a box (haven't bought SBS for a long time) which I assume is what is lost.

    Don't forget you need your CALs as well.

    This may be worth a look:

        If it is OEM, then the computer Manufacturer can supply you with Media.
        If it is VL, then any MS distributor can supply you with Media.
        If it is FPP (full priced product) then you need to find a friend to lend you a set.....

          Oh and Magic Jelly Bean won;t give you the SBS key, BelArc may, however.

            I have a wonderful feeling its not OEM, as there are no stickers on the box ( and I ALWAYS stick the stickers on if they come seperately)

            Dont also think its a FPP, which leaves my best guess at VL.

            CALS shouldnt be an issue, they were only using 2/5 that came with SBS.

            Thanks for the input all.
