Exchange Server 2013 Product Key Crack


How to Enter Your Exchange Server 2013 Product Key




A product key is a code that tells Exchange Server 2013 that you have purchased a Standard or Enterprise Edition license. Depending on the type of license you have, you can access different features and functionalities of Exchange Server 2013. For example, an Enterprise Edition license allows you to mount more than five databases per server, while a Standard Edition license limits you to five databases per server.

If you don't enter a product key, your server will be automatically licensed as a trial edition, which functions just like a Standard Edition server, but only for up to 180 days. After that, you will need to enter a valid product key or you will see reminders in the Exchange admin center (EAC) that you need to license your server.


In this article, we will show you how to enter your Exchange Server 2013 product key using the EAC or the Shell. You will also learn how to upgrade or downgrade your license from Standard to Enterprise or vice versa.


Prerequisites





  • You need to have a valid product key for Exchange Server 2013 Standard or Enterprise Edition. You can purchase one from Microsoft or an authorized reseller.



  • You need to have the appropriate permissions to enter the product key. To see what permissions you need, see the "Product key" entry in the [Exchange and Shell infrastructure permissions] topic.



  • If you are licensing an Exchange server that is running the Mailbox server role, you will need to restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service on the server after you enter the product key.




Using the EAC to enter the product key





  • Open the EAC by browsing to Access server name>/ecp.



  • Enter your username and password in Domain\\user name and Password, and then click Sign in.



  • In the EAC, go to Servers > Servers.



  • Select the server that you want to license, and then click Edit (the pencil icon).



  • In the properties page of the server, click Enter Product Key.



  • In the Enter Product Key page, type your 25-character product key in the Product key field, and then click Save.



  • Click OK when you see a message that says "You've successfully entered your product key. To enable this functionality, please restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service."



If your server is running the Mailbox server role, restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service by using either of these methods:


  • In Windows Server, open Services (services.msc), right-click Microsoft Exchange Information Store, and then click Restart.



  • In the Shell, run this command: Restart-Service MSExchangeIS






Using the Shell to enter the product key





  • Open the Shell on any computer in your organization. For more information about how to open the Shell, see [Open the Shell].



Run this command: Set-ExchangeServer -Identity -ProductKey XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX


  • is the name of the server that you want to license.



  • XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX is your 25-character product key.





If your server is running the Mailbox server role, restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service by using either of these methods:


  • In Windows Server, open Services (services.msc), right-click Microsoft Exchange Information Store, and then click Restart.



  • In the Shell, run this command: Restart-Service MSExchangeIS






How to upgrade or downgrade your license




If you want to upgrade your license from Standard Edition to Enterprise Edition, you can follow the same steps as above to enter an Enterprise Edition product key. You don't need to reinstall Exchange or remove any databases. However, you will need to restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service on the server after you enter the new product key.


If you want to downgrade your license from Enterprise Edition to Standard Edition, you will need to reinstall Exchange. Before you do that, you will need to remove any databases that exceed the limit of five per server. You will also need to back up any data that you want to keep. For more information about how to reinstall Exchange, see [Reinstall Exchange Server 2013].


Conclusion




In this article, we have shown you how to enter your Exchange Server 2013 product key using the EAC or the Shell. We have also explained how to upgrade or downgrade your license from Standard to Enterprise or vice versa. By entering a valid product key, you can unlock the full potential of Exchange Server 2013 and enjoy its features and functionalities.
