Upgrade from a SharePoint Server 2010 Standard CAL to an Enterprise CAL

Upgrade from a SharePoint Server 2010 Standard CAL to an Enterprise CAL

This article provides information and procedures on how to upgrade from a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Standard client access license (CAL) to an Enterprise CAL

Enable Enterprise features on existing sites

To convert the license type to the Enterprise CAL, you enable the Enterprise features on the SharePoint Central Administration Web site. Any new sites that you create will automatically have these features. However, existing sites do not receive the Enterprise feature set until you perform the steps to enable the features on existing sites. You have to perform these procedures only one time to update all sites in the server farm.
This procedure uses a SharePoint 2010 Timer service and may take a long time to complete, depending on the number of sites in the server farm.

To enable Enterprise features for the server farm 

1.    Verify that you have the following administrative credentials:
o    To enable enterprise features, you must be a member of the Farm Administrators group on the computer that is running Central Administration.
2.    On the Central Administration Web site, click Upgrade and Migration.
3.    In the Upgrade and Patch Management section, click Enable Enterprise Features.
4.    Enter the product key, and then click OK.
After you have enabled the features for the farm, you can enable the features on existing sites in the farm.

To enable Enterprise features on existing sites by using Central Administration 

1.    Verify that you have the following administrative credentials:
o    To enable enterprise features on existing sites, you must be a member of the Farm Administrators group on the computer that is running Central Administration.
2.    On the Central Administration Web site, click Upgrade and Migration.
3.    In the Upgrade and Patch Management section, click Enable Features on Existing Sites.
4.    On the Enable Features on Existing Sites page, select the Enable all sites in this installation to use the following set of features check box, and then click OK.

To enable Enterprise features on existing sites by using Windows Power Shell

2.    On the Start menu, click All Programs.
3.    Click Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products.
4.    Click SharePoint 2010 Management Shell.
5.    At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type the following command:

Enable-SPFeature [-Identity] <FeatureID> [-URL] <site URL>
Where:
o    <Identity> specifies the name of the feature or GUID to install.
o    <URL> specifies the URL of the Web application, site collection, or Web site for which the feature is being activated.

Verification:

Use the following procedure to verify that the enterprise features have been enabled on existing sites.
To verify that enterprise features are enabled on existing sites

How to display version info for installed SharePoint product and language packs

How to display version info for installed SharePoint product and language packs

Issue: some times when we are installing the CU’s in SharePoint farm, we may encounter the issue like below.

“The expected version of the product was not found on the system”

http://expertsharepoint.blogspot.de/2013/10/the-excepted-version-of-product-was-not.html

There are some work around for this to bypass\over come the issue. Please find the link below for workaround

Cause: the issue is because of some missing previous updates or patches in the server. To overcome the issue we need to find out the patches which are missed and need to install those on the server.

Solution: To figure out what the patches that missed in the server, I found a very good power shell script from Stephen. Thanks to Stephen

May 2015 CU for SharePoint 2010 has been released



May 2015 CU for SharePoint 2010 has been released

The product group released the May 2015 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2010 product family.

For May 2015 CU we again have full server packages (also known as Uber packages). No other CU is required to fully patch SharePoint.
Be aware that the May Cumulative Update for SharePoint 2010 is a Post-SP2 hot fix. It is required to have SP2 installed before installing the May CU.
It is required to have SP2 installed for the base product and all installed language packs to install May 2015 CU for SharePoint 2010.
This CU includes all SharePoint 2010 fixes released since SP2. The CU does not include SP2.

The KB articles for May CU are available at the following locations:
  • KB 3017815 - SharePoint Foundation 2010 - This is also a security fix!
  • KB 3015569 - SharePoint Server 2010
  • KB 2999496 - Project Server 2010
The Full Server Packages for May 2015 CU are available through the following links:
  • Download SharePoint Foundation 2010 May 2015 CU
  • Download SharePoint Server 2010 May 2015 CU
  • Download Project Server 2010 May 2015 CU
After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm.
Be aware that the SharePoint Server 2010 CU contains the SharePoint Foundation CU.
That means only one package has to be installed for the SharePoint 2010 product family.
