    Determining if Exchange Server Enterprise or Standard Edition is installed

    There is no distinction in the user interface between Exchange Server Standard and Exchange Server Enterprise editions.

    This is by design.

    To distinguish between Exchange Server Standard and Exchange Server Enterprise, check the Windows Event Viewer application event log upon startup.

    The following event is logged when the information store starts on an Enterprise edition Exchange Server computer:

    Event Id: 1217
    Source: MSExchangeIS
    Type: Information
    Category: General
    Description: "Information store with unlimited capacity started"

    The Standard edition logs the following event:

    Event ID 1216
    Source: MSExchangeIS Private
    Type: Information
    Category: General
    Description: Information store with limited storage capacity enabled.


    ? Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition
    ? Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise Edition
    ? Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Standard Edition
    ? Microsoft Exchange 2000 Enterprise Server
    ? Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 Standard Edition

    The easiest way is to open the properties for your server in Exchange System Manager (ESM), and on the General tab if you see the option "This is a front-end server" then your running Enterprise, otherwise you are running Standard.

    Note for Exchange Server 2003: In Exchange 2003 method #1 no longer works because Exchange 2003 Standard Servers can also act as Front-End servers, which was not true in Exchange 2000

    Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
    2. Locate the following key in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall
    3. Find the appropriate GUID registry subkey as listed below. Verify that the DisplayName in the right pane equals Microsoft Exchange 2000. The following subkeys indicate the version of Exchange 2000 that is installed on the server:? DB20F7FD-67BC-4813-8808-78F63E89EB56: Standard Version Upgrade Package (VUP)
