  • Hi,

     

    If you installed office SharePoint Server 2007 by using a Standard client access license(CAL), and are now converting your license type to the Enterprise CAL, you can enable and then push the Enterprise feature set to all sites in your server farm. according to your description, you want to enable Enterprise feature on existing sites. This procedure also uses a SharePoint Timer Services job and may take a long to complete depending on the number of sites in your server farm.
    1.        In Central Administration, on the top link bar, click Operations.
    2.        In the upgrade and migration section, click Enable feature on the existing sites. 
    3.        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.
    In my limited experience, you get the “error conversion failed” ,you couldn’t have the error in the log when checking the for details. I suggest that you should operate IISreset and restart the Windows SharePoint Services Timer. Please have a try.

  • If your current license ´was already "office sharepoint server with Enterprise Client Access License" then this installation was already an Enterprise installation.

    If you thought you had a Standard installation you were mistaken and so you now need to add Enterprise CALs for each of your users in addition to the Standard CALs they already should have.
