If you are a Microsoft Online Service Partner Agreement (MOSPA) partner for Office 365, to ensure that you are correctly compensated when a subscription request is originated from Windows Server Essentials via the Office 365 Integration Module, you need to create a registry key that contains your partner-of-record identification (POR ID). The following information is read and passed to the service provider through the Office 365 sign-up URLs.

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Server\MSO

  • Type = String Value

  • Key name = Partner

  • Value = xxxxx, where xxxxx is your POR ID

  1. On the reference computer, click Start, type regedit, and then press ENTER.

  2. In the left pane, expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, expand SOFTWARE, expand Microsoft, and then expand Windows Server.

  3. Right-click Windows Server, point to New, and then click Key.

  4. Type MSO for the name of the key.

  5. Right-click the key that you just created, and then click String Value.

  6. Type Partner for the name of the string, and then press ENTER.

  7. Right-click the new Partner string in the right pane, and then click Modify.

  8. Type your POR ID in the Value data text box, and then click OK.
