Windows 2003 Server Install Disks - Windows Server

Hi all, I have just purchased a version of Windows 2003 server with 5 CAL. I ordered it from a web shop and clearly asked for the P73-00001 version. I have been sent P73- 00156. The vendor tells me that these are one in the same but on other web shops I see that the P73-00156 is an open volume CD. Could someone please enlighten me and explain what the difference is, if any. I suspect that I am being duped Damian Marinucci...

    Default Windows 2003 Server Install Disks

    Hi all,

    I have just purchased a version of Windows 2003 server
    with 5 CAL. I ordered it from a web shop and clearly
    asked for the P73-00001 version. I have been sent P73-
    00156. The vendor tells me that these are one in the same
    but on other web shops I see that the P73-00156 is an open
    volume CD.

    Could someone please enlighten me and explain what the
    difference is, if any.

    I suspect that I am being duped

    Damian,

    The CD the are trying to sell you (P73-00156) is Media Only and not valid
    for use without a license key.
    The license key this product requires is a Volume License key you would get
    if you took out a Volume License agreement under Open with Microsoft.
    Unless you are already a holder of an Open Volume License Agreement you will
    not get the Product Activation Key you need to use this CD.
    If you are just trying to purchase a regular single server copy of Windows
    Server 2003 Standard and are not under a Volume License agreement then you
    MUST receive P73-00001 as this one is the Retail Full Packaged Product and
    comes with the appropriate Product Activation Key.
