Corporate Edition for Windows Server 2003 - Windows Server

A military system administrator asked if there was a corporate edition of Windows Server 2003 that doesn't have to be activated (similar to the Corporate Edition of Windows XP). Does anyone know? I searched the Web, support.microsoft.com, asked some colleagues, and searched this newsgroup and just cannot find the answer. Thank you!...

    Default Corporate Edition for Windows Server 2003

    A military system administrator asked if there was a
    corporate edition of Windows Server 2003 that doesn't have
    to be activated (similar to the Corporate Edition of
    Windows XP). Does anyone know? I searched the Web,
    support.microsoft.com, asked some colleagues, and searched
    this newsgroup and just cannot find the answer.

    Kurt,

    There is no such thing as a Corporate Edition of Windows XP or Windows
    Server 2003.
    The term "Corporate Edition" is usually used to refer to the pirated copies
    of the Volume Licensed (VL)products.
    The VL versions of both Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are self
    activating and thus do not require direct activation by the installer.

    Volume Liceseing infoormmation is covered at

    VL for Server 2003

    Thank you, sir! I didn't realize that "corporate edition"
    was a pirated term and that the correct term was "volume
    license" - thanks for clarifying on both issues. Most
    appreciated.
