    Hi All,

    I bought a 15 user licensed Back Office Small Business Server which was un-installed as the company grew and SBS was no longer adequate for their needs.

    The software includes all documents and licenses and have a proper invoice from the company, confirming that it has been completely un-installed from their servers and that now i am the licensee.

    I installed Back Office Small Business Server successfully using the registration ID provided on the original CD case. However, it asked for a 15 digit ID before it installs office 2000, which I can't find anywhere in the pack or on the back of CD.
    Called the company and they claim that they had gave me all the documents and Cd's and either can't be bother to look for it or they really think it was in the back.

    However, this leaves me in a somewhat undesirable position, as I have already paid for the complete bundle which included Novell, NT Workstations, FaxWare, ARCServe, Backup Exec and a few others and am not able to complete the installation of my server and am left with a intranet without a domain controller.

    Can anyone suggest where or how can I prove that I have genuine license and obtain a new 15 digit id for office 2000 that is included in Back Office Small Business Server.

    If this does not come free, as I have already invested a lot in hardware and software, I have no choice.

    I did spend some time browsing Microsoft site hoping that I will find an option to apply for a new one but couldn't find any relevant link or option.

    Can anyone please advise me what to do.

    Many thanks in advance,

    MD, MSc, Pgd, BEng
