SharePoint - Whats the best way to downgrade MOSS enterprise to standard

Asked By Chester Thomas on 17-Jul-09 05:55 AM

We just discovered that we are not licensed for MOSS enterprise and have to go back to standard. I have the unenviable task of assisting with the downgrade. I wanna do it like this:

Remove MOSS completely and reinstall MOSS standard. When runnin the wizard, I will connect to the DB server but create a new config database. I will then connect all my content databases back.


Will this work? Or is there a better way of doing this?

In the SharePoint 2007 faq, it is says: - Alon Havivi replied to Chester Thomas on 02-Nov-09 02:19 PM

"downgrades between the Enterprise and Standard CAL editions in Office SharePoint Server 2007 are technically not possible"
