Licensing Project 2010 Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have installed the evaluation SharePoint and Project Server 2010 software from the Microsoft website.  This is all up and running ok and we have purchased licences for SharePoint Enterprise and Microsoft Project Server plus all the CALS for the users we have.  My question is, what happens next?  I have had an email from Microsoft to sign up to the Volume Licensing website but there are no codes for SharePoint or Project in there.  Plus, when I do get the codes, where do I put them in as I can't see an option on the Project administration page to input license keys.  This would also apply to the CALs, where do I register those as I have installed CALs for terminal services before but not for SharePoint/Project.

     

    Thanks

  • Within the tool itself, you do not need to register licenses.  You are responsible
    for showing to Microsoft that you have licenses for all users, but that is
    not enforced within Project Server.
     
    As for your other questions, you'll have to refer to your licensing specialist.
     You probably won't get good answers from this forum - which focuses more
    on the technical aspects of Project.

    Thanks, we have bought licenses so can show that, I was just worried that the Project Server would deactivate itself like the Project clients threaten to!
