Volume License Key (if applicable)
Server Setup Keys
How do I get my key?
Server Setup keys are used for each server product/version combination to "unlock" the product and will bypass activation.
There are three ways to obtain setup keys:
Physical fulfillment. For products acquired through physical fulfillment, the setup key is printed on the media sleeve.
Download fulfillment. For products acquired by download, the setup key is provided with the download.
For products that are available for download from the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (
) Web site, the setup key is provided on the download screen and may be accompanied with the following text: "Some products available for download require setup keys. Please take note of this setup key as it will be needed during product installation."
Microsoft Activation Center. You can call the Activation Call Center to obtain the setup keys you need. When you call, you will be asked to provide Volume Licensing agreement information and proof of purchase.
