  • SBS 2008 Exchange product key required


    I installed SBS 2008 on a new server and activated it. I transferred users data. However, when I go to the Exchange 2007 console, it asks for a product key. I have used the sbs 2008 product key but it is rejected.

    My installation is not a 2003 migration but a fresh install.

    Can anyone help.

    Hello there, if it is a clean install, i think you don't have to do nothing, i cant confirm that because i havent looked in my server for that, but if you install sbs2008 and put the valid Key and activate, exchange 2007 should be activated. Did you install exchange 2007 downloaded from the internet? read this post and see if anything fit in you problem. Hope i helped you.


    Hello Again, just found this, probably this will resolve it, there is a script from MS that seem to be a registry hack, but before downloading it, scan it for virus and probably try it in a VM to see what happens. Check the last post for download.
