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)!
