  • Central Administration > Operations > Timer Job Definitions >Removed Trial Conversion Job

    Restarted the WSS Timer service (In the Services MMC)

    Restarted IIS

    Ran configuration wizard again.

    Central Administration > Operations > Convert License Type

    And it worked !!!

  • I'm wondering if you already had a MOSS 2007 Enterprise installation but didn't know it.

    (Idea comes from "already exists under the parent ")

  • Easy test.....try and enable enterprise features. If it works, you have enterprise already.

  • Yes and No.

    Although it's difficult to find these days, there once was a download of a Trial edition and when that was installed it was possible to decide between Standard and Enterprise.

    However the trial period would have expired a long time ago if the Trial edition was downloaded and immediately installed, so this objection is only if the trial file was downloaded but then saved for a year or two before being used.

    Not therefore too likely.

  • Sorry guys... I was on Vacation. Thanks for the replies

    Back to the issue. The enterprise license is not activated.

  • We used the same trial version in other machines and it got upgraded to enterprise.
