We've recently signed an agreement with Microsoft in order to become part of the SPLA program, wich let's us rent different licenses of MS products.
But we must before regularize our situation with the actual server licenses in the datacenter. Related to this we have two questions that maybe some admin knows:
The first one is that we have been told to look for the PartNumber of the installed version in the official sticker (you know, that thing with the hologram) attached to the server. We can't directly see this stickers because they are attached to the servers installed on the datacenter's racks. Is there any way of obtain this partnumber through some software or tool inside terminal server, for example?.
We have also been told to start paying our OEM licenses as SPLA licenses. We can't put the SPLA license in the OEM computer. Is there any way to change the active license (OEM) without reinstalling the operative system (To SPLA)?
We have a little mess here. We are a little company hosting but we are talking of 60-70 servers aprox.
Thanks a lot, really.
[EDIT] We've found a tool that gets all product keys in a network segment: ProduKey by Nirsoft. http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html
