Downgrading from Sharepoint 2010 Internet Enterprise to Standard (Purely a licensing rights question

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
My company already owns a license for Sharepoint 2010 Internet Enterprise.  We are planning a two server Internet farm.  We need to buy one more license and we only need the standard version which is significantly cheaper.  Is it allowed to use Standard when we own a license for Enterprise?

SharePoint 2010 Product Key to use upon installation Enterprise vs Internet

We are building a public facing SharePoint 2010 instance. Now of course we have to get the correct licences for public access and such, which we have done, but we have 2 licence keys one for "Enterprise" and one for "internet". What is the basic difference between using the "Enterprise" key VS the "internet" key? The install process asks for a product key, but does not give up any hints as to which key should be used for what purpose. When installing SharePoint 2010 for our public facing sites which Product key do we use? On the face of it you would think that the the "internet" key should be used because of the public facing requirement, but would that give you all of the other services (e.g., excel, infopath, visio, etc..) that the "Enterprise" key (Licence) provides? If you install with one key and realize after the fact that you needed to install with the other key can it be easily changed or is a re-install of SharePoint 2010 needed? Any assistance would be most appreciated    MatteoMatteo

SharePoint 2010 Internet Enterprise uninstall/reinstall with fixed enterprise key fails with error,


In attempting to apply the advice in http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sharepoint/archive/2010/06/03/sharepoint-server-2010-for-internet-sites-update.aspx, I'm unable to re-install SharePoint 2010 Enterprise for Internet Sites. 

I had a "Server Farm" installation using RTM (from my Select site) that installed all components (i.e., "Complete").  In addition, I had FAST server and Web Apps installed.

Per the instructions, I simply used the Control Panel to do the uninstall:

  • Used the Control Panel to uninstall SharePoint 2010 (i.e., yes to "Are you sure you want to remove Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 from your computer")
  • Restart
  • Get new product key
  • Run setup
  • Get error:  "The install in progress conflicts with a previously installed Microsoft Office 2010 Server product"

Perhaps I should have run the configuration wizard first to disconnect, etc. but was trying to follow the provided instructions exactly.

That said ... what can I do to clean up the remnants so I can re-install the product without wiping the server, etc.


P.S.  If the instructions were not intended to be taken literally, please update t

Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise on Windows7

Hello we just installed Sharepoint 2010 Foundation on Windows 7 great! and plan on using this configuration for to get our feet wet and now want to start planning for a configuring that will allow to utilize Excel Services and Data Warehouse capabilities and it appears that we will probably need to use the  Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise version based on this comparison chart: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/buy/Pages/Editions-Comparison.aspx so what we're wondering is will we be able to load the Enterprise version on Windows7? or will we need to install Windows Server 2008 on our machine first and then load the TechNet Enterprised version? or will there be inherent problems  in that approach based on the fact that we are using a desktop and not a real "server" machine? Thanks very much, got my fingers crossed!  BobK   

Using Web Service in SharePoint 2010 Standard Web part using Visual Studio 2010

Hi All,               Have an issue with  Web service in calling  by SharePoint 2010 Standard Web part using Visual Studio 2010. If you can tell where I went wrong or tips to solve this would be great for me. What I have done is like this.. 1) Created new 'Empty SharePoint' project : as Farm solution 2) Added Web parts 3) Trying to add Web Service : There was no option for adding Web Service , so added as 'Add new Service' , this created entries in app.config file 4) ServiceName : shown as name space  (what  I'm  expecting is as Global  object with all methods ) 5) Created Object of namespace.ServiceName.ServiceSoapClient and tried to call one of it's method 6) Build and deployed 7) While viewing that web part it is showing an error as [InvalidOperationException: Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'SerialKeyService.ServiceSoap' in the ServiceModel client configuration section.

General question steps to configure mysites in SharePoint 2010

I am trying to configure the mysite web application, so I have created a DNS record "mysite" and created a web application for the mysite and created a mysite host site collection on it. Now I have read somewhere that u have to create managed paths for the profile and the mysite, which actually corresponds with the name of the DNS record/mysite webapp. For some reason when i am opening the mysite, i get a url something like http://my/my. What am i doing wrong? Can somebody just give me a step by step approach on how to configure Mysites in MOSS 2010?I am a SharePoint Infrastructure Engineer, focussed on Administration and Installation of SharePoint Server environments.

how do I pass in a standard xml+xsl to be converted through the Sharepoint 2010 Document Conversion

How do I pass in a standard xml+xsl to be converted through the Sharepoint 2010 Document Conversion? Via the SDK I have been able to code a c# workflow that converts word files in a Sharepoint 2010 Document Library (docx,dox, word.xml) to PDF successfully but want to pass in an xml+xsl file to this engine if possible. Actually I have xml, xsl, and if needed xsl-fo files to deal with but would be happy if I could figure out how to make the Document Conversion engine do the xml+xsl transform and then send that to a doc file in Sharepoint.

Internet Exporer Crashes when viewing a SharePoint 2010 Slide library

I have 3 environments  (Test, Development & Production) in which this issue happens on all. Whether i create a new blank or use and existing Slide library; upload more than one Powerpoint slide in the library and i put my mouse cursor on any place other than the ribbon interface, Internet explorer jams and stops working. IE restarts itself and brings you back to the library but then does the same thing if you put your cursor anywhere in the sharepoint view. We had tested using IE without addons and it worked correctly. We then ran internete explorer and disabled all addons one by one until all were disabled and the issue was still occurring. We had changed a number of settings and found that disabling "active scripting" in the IE settings also made the issue dissapear. The issue is that we want active scripting and all add ons to work aswell.  We also updated Silverlight  from 4 with a build of 3.0.4 from the Microsoft Website.   (Internet Explroer 8 is the version running on Windows 7 Enterprise edition) The issue IE creates in the application log:  Event ID: 1000 Task Category: (100) Level: Error Keyword: Classic Faulting application name: IEXPLORE.EXE, version: 8.0.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bc69e Faulting module name: mshtml.dll, version: 8.0.7600.16490, time stamp: 0x4b2c9557
