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 afterward through Central Administration.

We can change this version after or before the installation of the server.

Today we will show you how to change the SharePoint edition after installation.

Open SharePoint 2013 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.

Type your license key here to convert License type.
