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

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

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)!

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

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 Search Server 2010 Express returns no search results for non-admin users

This is going to sound crazy, but anyway... bare with me... I have a SharePoint Search Server 2010 Express (RTM) installed with a crawl account (call it sharepoint_crawl) which has full read permission to an entire site collection of 100,000 documents. I have logged in with this account to make sure it has read access to everything, and it does. I run a full crawl of all documents and allow it to finish. If I try and search the content for an extremely common term (i.e. 50,000+ hits) I get no results. However, if I log in with a site collection admin I do get search results. There are no indexing errors or query errors in either log files or event log. Everything looks like it is working correctly - just no results for non-admins Anyone tripped on this? I have recreated the crawl account and perform a full re-index with the same results. What gets me is that the crawl account does have read permission to the content it is indexing, the content is indexed correctly, but the crawl account cannot get results back. It is as if security-trimming is removing everything. Any ideas?
