I've recently upgraded an ISA 2006 Standard evaluation server to ISA 2006 Standard (Volume Licence).
My question is should I have received a product key for this software? After ordering I logged into eOpen licencing as usual but could not find a key anywhere. After ringing a few people at MS licencing, was told the key ONLY comes attached to the media kit. So I went ahead and ordered the media kit, low and behold no product key.
Anyway my ISA trial expired last week so today I have upgraded to the full version using the VLK install kit downloaded from the eOpen website. During installation it did ask for a Product Key, but the field was already filled.
I proceeded using the already filled key (As i don't have a VLK one) and everything seems ok. The Product ID for ISA has now changed to show as Volume Licence rather than trial but I am still a little worried that I haven't been able to receive a product key (plus keep getting different stories from MS and Supplier).
Could anyone please shed some light into whether the VLK edition of ISA 2006 requires a product key and also if the fact that I have upgraded from evaluation using the already entered key during setup could cause issues?
Thanks tshinder, but asking MS so far has just led to more confusion. I have spoken to about 5 different people in Licencing. All said that they cannot generate a key, nor can I get one from the eOpen website. According to them the only way to get the key is off the media kit.
After ordering the media kit, my supplier insisted open licencing (volume licence) keys are NEVER put on the disc (as I always thought). I ordered the kit anyway as MS insisted thats how I would get the key. As it stands I now have a media kit with no Volume Licence Key on it and no idea how to get one or if I even need one....
Surely someone on the forums here has installed a clean ISA 2006 Standard Volume Licence edition recently and could tell me whether they needed to enter a product key???
We have installed severals Isa 2006 Std and Enterprise VLK and allways the field of Product Key was already filled in the installation setup. We never received a product key, so dont worry because everything is fine.
