SharePoint Disabling Enterprise Features

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

We have installed the Enterprise Edition of SharePoint 2007 and we want to downgrade to the standard edition.  Does anyone know exactly what feature(s) to disable from the Central Admin and each Site Collection level.

Programmatically activate SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features


As my solution requires the enterprise features I'm required to activate them. Right now I'm doing it manually through "site settings -> site collection features", but I want to do it automatically when activating an other part of my solution. I've used PowerShell to see the difference for "Get-SPFeature -site myurl" before and after activating the enterprise feature by hand, but there're at least 10 site collection features being activated through this one click step.

Is there a list of features which are part of the SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features or is there an easier way to activate them all at a time instead of doing it one by one programmatically.

Missing "SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection Features" in Site COllection Feature



All collection sites seem to be missing on the "SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection Features" in Site COllection Feature. However, I have PowerPivot uninstalled and reinstalled. Not sure if this could be the reason for it.


SharePoint 2010: What if some users need enterprise features and others do not?


There is an SharePoint 2007 FAQ (http://sharepoint2007.microsoft.com/how-to-buy/Pages/faq.aspx) that answers the question with this response: "Once the Enterprise features of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 are enabled, every client accessing Enterprise functionality on that server, or servers in a farm, is required to have an Enterprise CAL in addition to their Standard Client Access Licenses."

We have a SharePoint 2010 farm but no user has leveraged any of the Enterprise features such as InfoPath Form Services.  My IT department states that in order to provide certain user's access to the Enterprise features a second instance (with new additional web servers) would have to be deployed to provide a way to segregate the Standard CAL users from the Enterprise CAL users.

Is this correct?  I understand this would be true if using SharePoint 2007 but if using SharePoint 2010 does this still hold to be true?  Does the Service Application Architecture feature of SharePoint 2010 allow those features (such as InfoPath Form Services) to be enabled without running a whole other farm to support the Enterprise users?

Thanks, in advance, for the response(s)!

Short Overview of SharePoint Features in Visual Studio 2010

As you probably know, Visual Studio 2010 was announced earlier this week and it contains a lot of cool features and project templates for SharePoint developers. Below is a short overview for some of the SharePoint development related features and project templates.

New Features in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) is the next version of WSS 2.0, released on 2007, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) is built on top of this. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 takes full advantage of Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 and the core Microsoft .NET 2.0 runtime. WSS 3.0 offers a lot of new features and programmability support. I have consolidated a list of new features and enhancements in the below section:

Sharepoint 2007 and Excel 2010 features


Does Sharepoint 2007 Server support the new Excel 2010 feaures like slicers? Or do i have to have Sharepoint 2010 to get that working (considering all other components besides Sharepoint 2010 are available in my Sharepoint 2007 environment) ?

- Thanks



Running multiple websites in Sharepoint 2007 with AX2009 Enterprise Portal


I need to setup two separate webshops with public access and different layouts using AX2009 Enterprise Portal.

However I am uncertain how to implement two completely different layouts/designs because the Sharepoint Templates are located inside the 12 hive and not seperate for each website.

Can anybody give me some hints on how to do this - and if so, which requirements I have to meet (VSS 3.0 or MOSS Standard / Enterprise) in order to do it.

I am speculating whether I need to setup two separate web-servers with each own Sharepoint installation (and Business Connector Proxy)

Thanks in advance
