PS2010 trial on SP2010 trial, PS2010 lic entered, license field leaves blank RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have installed PS2010 trial on SP2010 trial. Now I have entered the PS2010 productkey and it accepted the license change.

    Now, the license field leaves empty. 

    Is it correctly licensed now or will for example SP2010 still expire?? I cannot enter any additional key,because the input is grayed out.

    Thanks for comments

    Sven

    I checked with MS support and understand that SharePoint will use Project license, if you face any issue, please contact Microsoft SharePoint Support team

  • Hi,

    I just wondered because I was not able to enter an SP2010 ent license code.You see?

    it is SP2010 trial + PS2010 trial + PS2010 productive.

    If the field is blank now.. does this mean everything is alright?

  • Hi Sven,

     

    If you got to convert license page, you will see the current status of SharePoint.

    Since the field is blank or not editable, I would assume your license type is correct now.

    But I guess SP is still trial version and will expire as per the trial period.

     

    Thanks,

  • Hi Hrishi,

    the first two sentences sound good, but the third scares me. Is it now white or black.. good or bad? 

    The 180 days trial would expire in a week (as calculated). As a said, I cannot add the SP2010 productive license, since the field is greyed out.

    Does the installation expire and if yes - what can be done to fix that?

  • Hi Hrishi,

    you are right. In the meanwhile I did enter the PS2010 product key which converted both trials - SP2010 and PS2010 into the productive license.

    See here for more info on technet

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh297441.aspx

    In the previous procedure, the Project Server 2010 key upgrades both the SharePoint Server 2010 Trial and Project Server 2010 Trial to the licensed editions. You will not be required to use the same procedure to convert the SharePoint Server 2010 Trial version to the license, because this has already occurred through your Project Server 2010 key. It is important to realize that you are still required to own a SharePoint Server 2010 (Enterprise with CAL) license for this installation.

    Cheers

    Sven
