With Exchange Server 2010, you do not enter a product key during initial setup. Instead, you provide the product key after installation using the Exchange Management Console. Until you enter a product key, Exchange Server 2010 runs in trial mode.

The product key you provide determines which edition is established on an Exchange server. You can use a valid product key to go from a trial edition to a Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition of Exchange Server 2010 without having to reinstall the program.

Using the Exchange Management Console, you can determine the established edition for an Exchange server and licensing by completing the following steps:

  1. In the Exchange Management Console, select the Server Configuration node.

  2. In the main pane, right-click the server you want to work with and then select Properties.

  3. In the Properties dialog box, the established edition and license details are listed on the General tab.

Note

You can determine the licensing configuration of multiple Exchange servers without accessing the properties of each server. In the Exchange Management Console, select the Server Configuration node. On the View menu, choose Add/Remove Columns. This displays the Add/Remove Columns dialog box. In the Add/Remove Columns dialog box, under Available Columns, click Product ID, and then click Add. Next, click Licensing, and then click Add. Click OK. This adds the Product ID and Licensing columns to the displayed columns list. In the main pane of the Exchange Management Console, scroll left or right as necessary to display the Product ID and Licensing columns for your Exchange servers. If the Product ID is listed as Unlicensed, you have not yet provided a valid product key for the Exchange server. Otherwise, the Product ID is an ID generated for the Exchange server.

Using the Exchange Management Console, you can enter a product key by completing the following steps:

  1. In the Exchange Management Console, select the Server Configuration node.

  2. Right-click the server that requires the product key, and then select Enter Product Key. This starts the Enter Product Key Wizard.

  3. When prompted, type in the product key for the Exchange Server 2010 edition you want to establish, either Standard or Enterprise, and then click Enter.

    Note

    The product key is a 25-character alphanumeric string, grouped in sets of five characters separated by hyphens. You can find the product key on the Exchange Server 2010 DVD case.

  4. The wizard validates the product key and displays any appropriate warnings. Read the information provided, and then click Finish. Keep the following in mind:

    • When you change the product key on a Mailbox server, you must restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service to apply the change.

    • When you change the product key on an Edge Transport server, you must resubscribe the server in the Exchange organization to apply the change.

    • You cannot use product keys to downgrade editions. To downgrade editions, you must uninstall Exchange Server and then reinstall Exchange Server.

Using the Exchange Management Shell, you can enter a server's product key using the Set-ExchangeServer cmdlet. Example 1 shows the syntax and usage. For the identity parameter, you use the server's name, such as MailServer25.

Example 1. Setting the Exchange product key syntax and usage

Syntax

Set-ExchangeServer -Identity 'ServerName'
-ProductKey 'ProductKey'


Usage

Set-ExchangeServer -Identity 'MailServer25'
-ProductKey 'AAAAA-BBBBB-CCCCC-DDDDD-EEEEE'

Tip

By using a valid product key, you can change from the Standard to the Enterprise edition. You also can relicense an Exchange server by entering a new product key for the installed edition, which is useful if you accidentally used the same product key on multiple servers and want to correct the mistake. The best way to do this is to enter the product key using the Set-ExchangeServer cmdlet.
