PS 2010 - How to upgrade Trial RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Folks,

    I installed Trial versions of MS SharePoint 2010 and Project Server 2010. Now I have license keys for both and I want to upgrade the trial version. How shall I do this?

     

    Please advise.

    Many Thanks

  • Hi Mohsin,

    You only need to use the Project Server 2010 license key to convert your product from trial to licensed, it will upgrade the both as the Project server 2010 key is the super SKU.

    and that you can do from Central Administration.

    hope this helps.

  • Hey Khurram,

    You mean, I'd require only PS 2010 key to upgrade both SharePoint and PS 2010. right?

  • Yes.

    Only the PS2010 key should upgrage your farm from trial to licensed.

  • Hi Khurram,

    this gives me hope, because I do not know if SP2010 will still expire:

    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.

    The trial period 180 days ends in a week and I would really be in trouble if it still expires, but if I understood correctly then the PS2010 productive key changes both components PS2010 AND SP2010 from trial to full license, right?

  • Here is what Technet says

    Important Important:

    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.
