"De-license" Exchange 2010 server

Not open for further replies.



I have a couple of test servers running Server 2008 Std that I was using to test an Exchange 2010 environment. Is it possible to simply uninstall Exchange 2010 from these machines (Virtual Machines) and re-use the Exchange keys again in a production environment?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Tech,

It's certainly possible however whether it is permissable depends on the licensing method you use, so it may be worth checking with your MS licensing vendor.

Agree with Steve, as you can't use the same Key all the time, it all depends on the licensing, if you the license to re-use the key than you can else NO

You need to get in touch with MS Licensing team cause they are right people to answer your question
