Multiple exchange licences expiration

Not open for further replies.

Hello all,

We have 1 windows server 2008 r2 and exchange 2010 on it. Licences are ok for thoses.

3 months ago we had problem with exchange and have installed a VirtualMachine with win server 2008 r2 and exchange 2010 on another computer. It was supposed to be a temporary solution until we'll resolve the other problem.

Then, the problem was solved =)

But... impossible to uninstall the second exchange.

And our main exchange says : have other exchange with no licence.. 3 days left.

Is our main exchange going to stop?? even if he has his own licence?

Thank you for your help! :)

No, not if it's licensed

What about the uninstallation?

No public folder contents or replication involved?

Your servers will continue to function.


"No loss of functionality will occur when the Trial Edition expires, so you can maintain lab, demo, training, and other non-production environments beyond 120 days without having to reinstall the Trial Edition of Exchange 2010."

Basically, your server will function as a Standard Edition server.

Hello, thanks for your response!
Here a some pictures of the "problem". (sorry it's in french..) (our good exchange server is named "mars" and the other without licence is "WIN-M3PV...")

I've just moved the "offline adress book" from the unlicencied server to the licenced.

We don't use the public folers.

WIN-M3PV.. don't seems to respond correctly when I try to uninstall exchange ("can't contact AD..") :s

Hello, thanks for your response!

The problem is that I think it's not a Trial Edition (it's not named like trial.. ) :s

Sorry, didn't mean to propose as aswer...If it isn't licensed, then it is the trial edition.

Hi Frank,

Thank you for responding!

It says that there are mailbox on it. I've seen on the web that there's hidden mailboxes in exchange.

But the main problem was solved .. itself .. because the countdown is now over and our main exchange's still working.

I'll try the uninstall in some days.

Thank you all for your help!
