  • Question

  • Currently my test SharePoint server 2007 is running trial with Standard Client Access License and i would like to convert it to enterprise . I tried to enter a valid license key, but it said: "Failure! Your license conversion operation failed. Check the error logs for details."

    I tried following option but issue still persisting.

    Restart the WSS Timer service (In the Services MMC)

    Restart IIS

    Error: Failure! Your license conversion operation failed. Check the error logs for details.

    Regards,

    You seem to be confusing two things.

    1. What version of MOSS 2007 has been installed.

    2. Which CALs you have bought.

     

    In this case which CALs you have is relevant here ONLY if you also installed the Standard Edition version of  MOSS 2007. If you installed the Enterprise Edition (but then only - incorrectly - bought Standard CALs [you should in that case buy both Standard and Enterprise CALs] then you already have an Enterprise installation and can then thus not upgrade it to an Enterprise installation.

    If that's the case you should rush out and buy  Enterprise CALs for all your users of the system so that all your users end up with both Std and Ent CALs and you are thus fully licensed.

  • I’m not able to convert MOSS 2007 Standard trail to MOSS 2007 Enterprise.

    MOSS 2007 Trail version: 12.0.0.6545

    I tried with valid MOSS 2007 Enterprise key, but it said: "Failure! Your license conversion operation failed. Check the error logs for details."

    Central Administration > Operations > Convert License Type
