Downgrade from SP 2010 Enterprise to SP 2010 Standard

Downgrade from SP 2010 Enterprise to SP 2010 Standard

At my work we work with a pre-setup development environment, which always includes SharePoint Enterprise edition. But if you have a customer working with the Standard edition, you might be in some trouble during deployment.

To prevent trouble, you can downgrade your Enterprise installation by de-activating and de-installing some features. Below follows a small script to remove the Enterprise features from your environment. Replace the http://url with the correct url.

There’s no other easy way in the GUI. Use stsadm or PowerShell(Disable-SPFeature FeatureFolderName -Url http://url) to disable these features:

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name PremiumSite

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name BizAppsSiteTemplates

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name BizAppsCTypes

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name IPFSSiteFeatures

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name BizAppsFields

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name ExcelServerSite

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name BizAppsListTemplates

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name PremiumWeb

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name ReportListTemplate

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name DataConnectionLibrary

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -force -url http://url -name IPFSWebFeatures

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name PremiumSite

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name BizAppsSiteTemplates

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name BizAppsCTypes

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name IPFSSiteFeatures

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name BizAppsFields

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name ExcelServerSite

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name BizAppsListTemplates

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name PremiumWeb

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name ReportListTemplate

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name DataConnectionLibrary

stsadm -o uninstallfeature -force -name IPFSWebFeatures

To activate the Enterprise features again, you can use the following script:
stsadm -o installfeature -name PremiumSite

stsadm -o installfeature -name PremiumWeb

stsadm -o installfeature -name BizAppsSiteTemplates

stsadm -o installfeature -name BizAppsCTypes

stsadm -o installfeature -name IPFSSiteFeatures

stsadm -o installfeature -name BizAppsFields

stsadm -o installfeature -name ExcelServerSite

stsadm -o installfeature -name BizAppsListTemplates

stsadm -o installfeature -name ReportListTemplate

stsadm -o installfeature -name DataConnectionLibrary

stsadm -o installfeature -name IPFSWebFeatures

stsadm -o activatefeature -url http://url -name PremiumSite

stsadm -o activatefeature -url http://url -name PremiumWeb
