Hello Spin,

No, it is enabled by default. Check "Local Security Policy" and there go to:
Local policies, security Options, in the right pane check the UAC settings.

Best regards

Thanks Meinolf, but I borrowed my company's copy of Microsoft Windows Server
2008 which was a Volume License Copy and I noticed that UAC was turned OFF.
I also never had to input a product ID code. Now, this Microsoft Windows
Server 2008 CD I used was a "Burned" copy, it wasn't the original media.

Hello Spin,

Ok, when i installed my test versions from original UAC was always turned
on, anyway with the local security policy or a GPO you can configure UAC
for your needs.

During installation you don't have to fill in a license key, doesn't matter
which version. Check under system properties, scroll down to the windows
activation to see if it is activated and if not choose change product key,
fill in the license and activate it.

Best regards
