For previous version of Dynamics CMR/365 I was able to obtain a Product Key from my MSDN subscription and use that to install the D365 server.
There are no product keys listed in MSDN for v9. According to the person I spoke to on MSDN support live chat, Dynamics 365 is not available via an MSDN subscription.
Has anybody installed the on-prem version of D365 v9? How did you get a product key? Obviously we could use the 90-day trial key to begin with but it's not a long term solution.
In the past we've been able to obtain onpremise keys from one of the Microsoft Partner Portals (now migrated into the new Partner Center). Last time I checked, the partner center did unfortunately not have keys for CRM 9 either so I have to run on a trial key on my new dev instance for now. It seems they are a bit behind in their usual routines with this release...
Same - no key in ours either. Will definitely be highly concerning if they're removing from availability (as opposed to just being behind on the release steps) - how else are people supposed to run dev/qa environments? That the reason I have MSDN. Fingers crossed it's just a delay. We are also just using the trial key for now, with the hopes that the MSDN ones come out within 90 days...
I work for a Microsoft Partner and we still can't get perpetual keys. The agent I spoke with in the Partner membership support center said he doesn't see any keys listed for v9. Either MSFT is still way behind, or they've removed this. The license table for Competency Partners even shows that we get licensing for CRM On-Prem server for Demonstration and Training.
We’re having the same issue. Here’s the response received today from msft partner support:
Thank you for your patience. I have received an update from Microsoft support team and asper IUR License Tables, Dynamics v9.0 has not been added yet on the list of IURs that are being offered to partner.
At this moment, we cannot generate tokens for this latest version, until we get confirmation that this product is being offered to partners.
The case number  is now closed based on the resolution provided.”
Hoping to find anyone who has some information. We’re also currently testing using the 90-day keys.
That's going to be a problem as my key only has demo key only has 11 days remaining...
I will wait until Monday when I'm back in the office and raise a bug and rapidly escalate it...
I reached out to our Microsoft Services Account Manager. Hopefully she responds soon. Otherwise, I'll also try the support route.
Has anyone tried using their v8.x product keys for their v9 installation? This might work.
1st thing I tried... No luck
our develop environment is running out of trail mode in 3 days from now. is this really the way microsoft wants us to switch from on premise systems to the cloud?
We are aware of this product key issue and and are working on it. Once I have any additional information I will update this thread...hopefully this will be sometime next week.
Please hurry... Gold partner... <10d remaining on v9.0.2 onprem for dev & test purposes...
I can see a download for v9 in our VLSC now, at least - hopefully that's a sign it's coming elsewhere?
If you download your V9 installation media from VLSC and extract the contents, you should find your product key in a file called license.txt at location \server\amd64\license.txt.
Right - but that's a production key. People are still hoping for an MSDN non-production key. There used to be neither, and now at least there's this one up, so I'm hoping that means the MSDN one might be coming soon?
Right, MSDN subscription is no longer available. You can create 90 days triald from Dynamics Online if it is not enough for you, you can submit a ticket to MS Support once your period has ended. It can be extended a little bit more based on your partner profile and expectations.
The key has now appeared in my list of MSDN Product Keys - so if you are still waiting for a key have another look.
Thank you Shawn - this worked for me
