    Dear Tonrosales,

    Can you please rephrase your question. What do you mean by validating the software? You mean the HASH check?

    Thanks

  • How can I validate the software that was downloaded using an MSDN account.

    Example,  SQL Server, I see some deployments but need to validate how they were downloaded.  Since no license keys are needed.

    Does this help

    Thanks

    I still don't understand what do you mean by "Validation" here?. You want to check the integrity of the downloaded ISO file? If so you can use HashTab or similar tools.

    Please let me know

    Thanks

  • OK,  When I download and install any MS product (office0 I need to go through an activation process and may need to enter and license key for verification purposes. 

    When I look at my environment and see SQL server deployed, is there a way to identify that these installs were done via an MSDN account or full versions

    Dear Tonrosales,

    Thanks for rephrasing your question, there is no official way to check the source of the installation in your environment. But you can try these general steps.

    1. Please check the installed product key and the edition.

    2. Check this link for the different editions and pricing https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/sql-server/sql-server-2016-pricing and I suppose SQL Server Enterprise is available only from Volume Licensing and Standard is available in both the channels.
