SharePoint Server can be licensed in one of two editions: Standard and Enterprise, which is determined by the license key applied to the server. This key may be applied at installation time, or afterwards through Central Administration.
We can change this version after or before installation of server.
– SharePoint 2013 create Provider Hosted App using Visual Studio 2012
– SharePoint 2013 Find an Item search box does not return results
– Enable SharePoint 2013 Server Publishing Feature using PowerShell
Today we will show you how to change SharePoint edition after installation.
i. Open Central Administration page , then click on “Convert farm license type” which is under “Upgrade and Migration”.
The “Convert Farm License Type” link within Central Administration is where you apply the Product Key to convert from a SharePoint Standard to Enterprise installation. Once the key has been applied, Central Administration helpfully instructs you to restart IIS on all Front End Servers in the farm. Additionally, you are prompted to “click OK to proceed to the Enable Features on existing sites’ page”, with the option to do this later at any time from the “Upgrade and Migration” page in Central Administration.
ii. Type your license key here to convert License type
iii. After Apply the license key the screen wizard will come like below.
iv. Click on Enable Enterprise Feature option and verify it’s enabled
Hope this will be helpful.
