Exchange 2007 license RRS feed

  • Question

  • We bought an HP ML330 G6 server and it come with SBS 2008 & prodkey for it. I am testing out Exchange 2007 on another server (on Windows 2008 Standard) and it said Trial..I would like to know..If SBS 2008 come Exchange 2007. Once I enter the SBS prodkey, would it auto register for Exchange 2007 also?

    Thanks!

  • No, SBS license is only valid for Exchange 2007 hosted on the SBS server.

    You have to buy a separate license for that server. A configuration like this will cost you more.

    Any reason you need a second Exchange box?

  • Hi   
        1. About license   
     
     In the United States, call (800) 426-9400 to speak to a Microsoft representative.
      
    In Canada, call (877) 568-2495.
       The sales are very familiar with different license.  
        2. As far as I know, many default values of normal exchange are different with them of SBS.
            Maybe they will affect the result of your test.

  • Thanks for your reply..I just setup a test Win2008 with Exchange to practice migrating from SBS 2000 to SBS 2008...so this is a temp server for Swing migration.
