Can you help me with my software licensing issue?
My company has a SPLA (service provider) license with Microsoft. I am new to the company and those before me are now gone. I have access to Microsoft's volume license portal and can see our agreements with Microsoft.
My question is for post products like Windows Server 2008 R2 for instance we have a MAK product key with 1500 available activations. We use this to activate customer's servers that are provided/managed by us.
The problem is some customers who arent managed by us, dont want us to activate their OS for them. They want their own product key so they can activate when needed. We however dont wish to give them our MAK key with 1500 activations.
Are there any SPLA license experts out there that have experienced this situation and how they handled it?
