PS2010 (trial) on SP2010 (enterprise - productive license) - what happens if PS2010 expires? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we have PS2010 trial installed on a SP2010 farm that has a productive license (enterprise edition). Actually we do not consider to continue using PS2010 longer than the trial period. Unfortunately there is no deinstallation path available.

    We neither use PWA nor the Project Websites.

    Does the expiring PS2010 trial have any negative consequences on the productive licensed SP2010 farm? I know that if SP2010 trial expires then it blocks user access to content sites, but what's up with PS2010 expiring?

    Would help me a lot to know :)

  • I implemented a full PS2010 license to get it into "licensed" mode as described here

    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.

  • Hi Swen,

    How did you do that? As far as I know, it is not possible to install PS2010 trial on a licensed SP2010 !?

    Best wishes,

    Stefan
